It can lead to discussions about confusion, loneliness, abandonment, getting lost and the way people treat each other. Furthermore, it suggests perceptions can be changed and if others can accept someone, we can do the same. Her mother finds her and, again, another wonderful illustrations shows little Beegu reunited with her parents. g. yellow surrounding the children, where Beegu seemed happy and having fun, and then dark greys and browns, where Beegu is walking along the busy sidewalk surrounded by what looks like many adults rushing by and ignoring her.

The images of Beegu are a great aid to the readers in seeing just how different Beegu is and why he is having such difficulty in our world making friends.I have seen this story read to a class of year 2 pupils and it was totally captivating for both boys and girls.

There are not too many words on each page, so this is suitable for the youngest child, but older children (and this adult) are likely to love it too. She feels lost and scared and tries to make the best of the situation, so she attempts to make friends. She is scared, lonely and confused and begins to wander around the near by city in hope to find some friends to care for her.Waiting for a rescue signal from her mother, she fails to make friends with the strange creatures she encounters. It can encourage children’s creativity in art as they design and make Beegu figures, as well as making alien friends for Beegu to play with.

This book is charming and an excellent read for KS1 children, particularly Foundation stage and for classrooms with UAL and SEN children. Inspiring children’s creative writing, they can describe and create the planet where Beegu originates and describe new planets Beegu can discover with her friends. The illustrations are brilliant and therefore useful to look at with children because they link clearly with the story and can express emotions to children.Along with The Doll's House by Rumer Godden, this child's picture book demonstrates the aristotelian concept of "catharsis" as well as any other work of drama/fiction I've encountered, and shows exactly how powerful children's literature can be. 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. Although the plot is relatively simple- alien lands on Earth, tries to find friends, rescued by parents, tells them about her short time on Earth- there is so much that can be taken from this and the poignant pictures on each page. It has scope to be studied in drama too for children to consider her emotions and develop empathy towards her. The story is about her trying to find her way back home travelling through a city coming across what life on Earth is like.

I am likely to remember Beegu and sad that I’m one of the oldsters Beegu will not make a point of fondly remembering. There is an illustration of Beegu cuddled up in a warm cardboard box with some puppies which is simply gorgeous.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. 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! 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.
