9780099417446: Beegu

The story of an alienated alien

Beegu’s spacecraft is stranded on Earth. Now she is lost and wandering. Waiting for a rescue signal from her mother, she fails to make friends with the strange creatures she encounters. Rabbits don't seem to understand her; windblown leaves won’t stay still to listen. But at last, on a school playground, Beegu discovers a group of fantastic companions who are happy to let her join their games . . . until a grownup creature spoils the fun.

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.

About the Author:

Alexis Deacon recently graduated with an honors degree in illustration from the University of Brighton and now lives in London, England. Slow Loris, his first picture book, was praised by Publishers Weekly as "a quirky tale with an entertaining twist."

From Booklist:

PreS-Gr. 1. This book's raison d'etre is an endearing yellow alien named Beegu, who resembles a cross between a stuffed bunny and a three-eyed toddler in footie pajamas. Marooned on Earth after her flying saucer crashes, Beegu searches for help, her earlike appendages drooping in disappointment each time an unsympathetic adult sends her packing. At last she stumbles onto a playground, where welcoming children give her a hula hoop as a souvenir, and, more importantly, a positive impression of Earthlings to share with her parents when they finally return and beam her up for a joyful hug. Few words are used or needed, thanks to Deacon's clear visual storytelling: the way the textured, earth-toned backgrounds set off Beegu's bright-yellow form conveys her isolation more strongly than words. Beegu's experiences send a rather facile message about the sweetness of children versus the jaded self-absorption of grown-ups ("Earth creatures were mostly big and unfriendly, but there were some small ones who seemed hopeful"), but this drama of parental loss and reunion will resonate nonetheless.
