Beegu shows it as it is!!

For me, the feel of the book is too downbeat, not at all what I expected.
We see that children are prepared to embrace the unknown - an excellent message. However, the other equally clear message is that grown ups ignore ,or -worse- turn away the unknown.
Try explaining to a 3 year old why people abandon puppies, why they turn away a beautiful lost alien, why they are too busy to care. Why not put off facing such questions, and exposing children to tough realities to a later date...
