This story of a stranded young alien on Earth is brought to life by excellent artwork. The illustrations perfectly capture the emotive situations, be it a cute image of a vulnerable Beegu cuddled up in a box with abandoned puppies, or the excited Beegu with his massive ears sticking up when encountering playful children.
This is short book, but it is very poignant. It's almost heart-breaking at times, but as it's a children's bed-time story - you know it'll have a happy ending.
This is my first experience of Alexis Deacon, but I'm quite a fan of Oliver Jeffers (see Lost and Found, and The Way Back Home) and 'Beegu' provides that same level of luscious humorous artwork along with a story that makes story-time something for us daddies to look forward to as well.
