Beegu

Beegu
By Alexis Deacon
Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2003. Unpaged. Picture book.

Beegu accidentally crash lands her UFO on earth and finds herself alone. All she wants is to make a friend, but no one speaks her language--not the trees, not the leaves, not even the rabbits she finds hopping around the forest. So, Beegu heads into town—where the humans live. Cute as can be, Beegu resembles something like a glow-in-the-dark bunny with three eyes. The story of her search for love and friendship among strangers is touching and even laugh out loud funny at times. (Beegu’s pictograph description of all her adventures at the end of the book is fabulous!) This picture book makes a great read aloud for boys and girls of all ages.
