Book: Beegu


Beegu

by Alexis Deacon (author, illustrator)

Beegu Beegu in the sky

Trippy story gets me high

Slightly preachy E.T. tale

Lovely drawings still prevail

Beegu Beegu in the sky

Guess we’ll read this book tonight

Note: I did not expect this story about an alien crash-landing to be such a hit with Nick, but this is in regular rotation right now at bedtime. he message is simple enough – kids on this planet are sweet; the adults, not so much. Beegu looks a bit like a 3-eyed yellow rabbit crossed with the Shmoo, which, apparently, makes for a compelling protagonist.

Go figure.
