A silly and heartwarming picture book about a poop-loving dung beetle who learns not to hide the quirks that make him special. Dougie has a secret: he's not a ground beetle. He's a dung beetle, and he loves eating poop. Dougie knows that if anyone at school saw his lunch, he'd be an outcast. But when the lunchroom bugs out over a classmate eating poop, Dougie has to stand up for his friend and reveal his true self. Dougie's declaration that he's proud to be a dung beetle leads to surprising revelations from his classmates, showing that everyone is a little weird in their own way! I Eat Poop is about friendship, fitting in, and about how different tastes make the world a more interesting place.
