About this deal

The story is a great one to use with all ages, with the lesson behind it being to accept everyone for who they are. The gorgeous illustrations makes it accessible to EAL (English as an additional language)and SEN (Special Educational Needs) children and as the story is so simple it is ideal for children to act this out in role play. The pictures are very well done with the format changing page-to-page, some are a comic strip style, others have a small illustration and others take up the whole page.

Her mother finds her and, again, another wonderful illustrations shows little Beegu reunited with her parents. Finally she finds some children on the playground that welcome her, suggesting that children are much more open- minded as they have fewer misconceptions. I love it when Beegu finds some friends, the puppies and snuggles up happily with them, and the scene with the children. Then an adult from an animal shelter finds Beegu and it is obvious that, “Beegu wasn’t wanted there. This book is charming and an excellent read for KS1 children, particularly Foundation stage and for classrooms with UAL and SEN children.It can lead to discussions about confusion, loneliness, abandonment, getting lost and the way people treat each other. Then she encounters young kids on the playground who accept her as a friend; that is until a teacher comes and kicks her off the playground. Would be a lovely story to share with EAL children, about how we speak different languages and some may feel the struggle of not being understood.

She tells them all about how the big Earth creatures were unfriendly but the small ones seemed hopeful.The rest of the story offers good lessons on friendship and parental teaching as Beegu is redeemed in the end.

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. I love how the children and puppies in this story are so welcoming to Beegu and it’s a big part of this story how the adults are not so welcoming. But the only friendly people she comes across are the children, while the big Earth creatures just don’t seem to understand. T, a young alien that had become separated from their family and lost on, what was to them, an alien planet, however befriends a group of children and is soon to be reunited by their family. 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.Unfortunately a dog shelter owner and a primary school teacher put a stop to her adventure in the school and again is left to be alone. Beegu finally finds some comfort when she curls up with several puppies in a box until a human tosses her out. They appear to be done in water color and they are simple pictures, yet they convey a lot of emotion. The story is about her trying to find her way back home travelling through a city coming across what life on Earth is like.

Here she seems sad from the way her, what looks like ears, are drooped back like a sad dog, as well as sadness in her eyes. Beegu and Jitterbug Jam, both of which he illustrated, were named as New York Times Best Illustrated Children’s Books of the Year. The Story centres around an Alien coming to Earth and finding it difficult to find a place to fit in; with everywhere he goes, he is turned away and rejected. 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!After a while of being isolated from creatures the same as her, a big ship which had her parents in, came to rescue her. This story was requested again and again and again at bedtime and I never grew tired of this baby alien’s adventure. There is an illustration of Beegu cuddled up in a warm cardboard box with some puppies which is simply gorgeous.
