The Dung Beetle Compass

The Roll of the Sun in the Celestial Compass of Dung Beetles

Written by Roar

Illustrated by Anna Totten, an illustrator and designer who aims to make the world more friendly, one project at a time. Her work includes writing and illustrating stories, murals, community art, and art instruction. She believes in the power of visual literacy and loves to flex her creative muscle, especially in service to those who may feel left out. Helping kids (and the kid inside) feel seen and heard is some of the best work of all. Anna is a graduate of North Carolina State University’s College of Design, a member of SCBWI, and Rutgers University Council on Children’s Literature One-on-One Conference Mentee. Anna lives in North Carolina under a lovely yet allergy-inducing canopy of oaks. She enjoys geeking out over creepy critters and fungi, is often reading a book written for kids, and wishes someone else would figure out what’s for dinner. Check out more of her work here.
