Call of nature — the secret life of dung

We have a cover concept, and a title. And I’m very pleased to see that the spine of the book will be adorned with an elephant’s bottom. Publication, some time in October I think.

Elephant trumpeting = calling; there's a visual pun thing going on here too.

From chapter 13, Glossary: Call of nature, idiomatic expression of a general need to urinate or defecate. The only euphemism I will allow myself, but only if accompanied by the natural act itself, somewhere out in nature.
