Description

Waiting for a rescue signal from her mother, she fails to make friends with the strange creatures she encounters. This book teaches the importance of being kind to others and welcoming others into a new environment. I have seen this story read to a class of year 2 pupils and it was totally captivating for both boys and girls. 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.

At last, the lonely Alien found a small group of children, who accepted the Alien regardless his differences. These questions could be explored with the class a discussion and/or as an opportunity for the class to create their own narrative for the reasons behind these remaining puzzles. 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 tries to comunicate and form friendships although she is often pushed away, due to her being misunderstood and different. 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!

Deacon’s simple text and soft illustrations cleverly convey a child’s feelings of uncertainty and confusion when faced with new surroundings.

Then an adult from an animal shelter finds Beegu and it is obvious that, “Beegu wasn’t wanted there. She tells them all about how the big Earth creatures were unfriendly but the small ones seemed hopeful. Feeling bewildered and alone as she awaits a rescue signal from her mother Beegu sets off to find friends with the strange creatures she comes across. 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. It would be an excellent book for teachers to use when welcoming new students into the classroom, encouraging the children to be considerate and make sure no one in the class feels anxious and isolated like Beegu.Beegu's spirits are sinking lower than ever just as the mother ship arrives, in this simple, bittersweet picture book that shows us our world through the three eyes of an innocent outsider with the help of stylish art and a wry, understated text. There are some questions which are left unanswered as a reader such as “Why didn’t any of the people on the street seem to notice Beegu, particularly when she didn’t seem to be of their world? This is a fun, interesting and moving story with a happy ending, beautiful illustrations, colour palette and wonderful message.

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. Beegu finally finds some comfort when she curls up with several puppies in a box until a human tosses her out.The story unravels to reveal that although the adult humans weren’t very helpful or even nice to Beegu, the children on Earth were. With this message behind it, I feel it can be read to any children whether they are four or eleven, there can be clear discussions after and during the story in terms of their comprehension of it and what the important factors were.
