There are some questions which are left unanswered as a reader such as “Why didn’t any of the people on the street seem to notice Beegu, particularly when she didn’t seem to be of their world?

They remind me of Allie Brosh’s dog illustrations that manage to pack so much expression into a line drawing.

The images of Beegu are a great aid to the readers in seeing just how different Beegu is and why he is having such difficulty in our world making friends. There is an illustration of Beegu cuddled up in a warm cardboard box with some puppies which is simply gorgeous. In the end the Alien finds their mother and explains how earth people are cruel and rejecting but suggested there was still an opportunity for change.

The beautifully simplistic illustrations convey a lot of emotion, and children and adults alike will be able to interpret when Beegu is happy and sad. 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. Deacon’s simple text and soft illustrations cleverly convey a child’s feelings of uncertainty and confusion when faced with new surroundings. 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. They appear to be done in water color and they are simple pictures, yet they convey a lot of emotion.

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!

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. I am likely to remember Beegu and sad that I’m one of the oldsters Beegu will not make a point of fondly remembering.Alexis Deacon is one of Book Trust's ten Best New Illustrators, and Beegu was a New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Book of the Year and shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal. There are not too many words on each page, so this is suitable for the youngest child, but older children (and this adult) are likely to love it too. This is a sweet, touching story about a young rabbit-like alien who is stranded on Earth and looking for her mother. 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.
