Description

Having only a sentence or two on each page really draws the reader into the pictures which are a good talking point for how Beegu is feeling at different points in the book. Wandering once again, Beegu encounters a group of schoolchildren on the playground, who warmly welcome her into their midst - until the grownup in charge puts a stop to it. After a while of being isolated from creatures the same as her, a big ship which had her parents in, came to rescue her. Ignored by both the rabbits and leaves she seeks friendships from the adults she finds in the city of London, only to be dismissed. The story is a great one to use with all ages, with the lesson behind it being to accept everyone for who they are.

This book is charming and an excellent read for KS1 children, particularly Foundation stage and for classrooms with UAL and SEN children. 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 illustrations beautifully demonstrate the different emotions Beegu feels throughout the story, with his ears moving up and down just like a puppy dog when they’re happy or sad. Sad and alone she finds comfort in a box of abandoned puppies outside an animal shelter but it is soon apparent that “Beegu wasn’t wanted there” when she is discovered by an adult. I love the scene where she is reunited with her parents and she retells her experiences in her special language, the pictographs are great in her speech bubble.

She is scared, lonely and confused and begins to wander around the near by city in hope to find some friends to care for her. 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. Then an adult from an animal shelter finds Beegu and it is obvious that, “Beegu wasn’t wanted there. The story unravels to reveal that although the adult humans weren’t very helpful or even nice to Beegu, the children on Earth were.

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. Her mother finds her and, again, another wonderful illustrations shows little Beegu reunited with her parents.
