Description

In the end the Alien finds their mother and explains how earth people are cruel and rejecting but suggested there was still an opportunity for change. This is shown as Beegu is seen to play with human toys and even given a hula hoop to keep by the children which she befriends at a school. I love it when Beegu finds some friends, the puppies and snuggles up happily with them, and the scene with the children. This book teaches the importance of being kind to others and welcoming others into a new environment.

Having only a sentence or two on each page really draws the reader into the pictures which are a good talking point for how Beegu is feeling at different points in the book. Beegu experiences different environments/places on earth and expresses different feelings throughout his stay on earth.

RAT LAW’ states that ‘Cheese Belongs To You’ – at least until someone bigger, stronger, faster, or scarier decides otherwise.

She tells them all about how the big Earth creatures were unfriendly but the small ones seemed hopeful. It can lead to discussions about confusion, loneliness, abandonment, getting lost and the way people treat each other.The second picture-book I have read from Alexis Deacon (the first being Slow Loris) - an English author/artist whose work has been strongly recommended to me by a friend and fellow children's literature enthusiast - Beegu is a deceptively simple story, one that flawlessly blends word and image to create a poignant tale of being adrift in a strange new world.

They remind me of Allie Brosh’s dog illustrations that manage to pack so much expression into a line drawing. She retells her Earth experience to her parents describing the earth creatures as big and unfriendly “but there were some smaller ones who seemed hopeful”. When a little alien named Beegu - who looks rather like a three-eyed yellow rabbit, with long floppy ears - crash lands on Earth, she has trouble making herself understood by the locals, who seem either indifferent or unfriendly. But at last, on a school playground, Beegu discovers a group of fantastic companions who are happy to let her join their games .

This story was requested again and again and again at bedtime and I never grew tired of this baby alien’s adventure. I love the scene where she is reunited with her parents and she retells her experiences in her special language, the pictographs are great in her speech bubble. I looked through some books I had packed away to go up to the attic today, they’re all coming back to the book shelves, this one is lovely! Furthermore, it suggests perceptions can be changed and if others can accept someone, we can do the same. Sad and alone she finds comfort in a box of abandoned puppies outside an animal shelter but it is soon apparent that “Beegu wasn’t wanted there” when she is discovered by an adult.
