Beegu’s spaceship is stranded on earth and she is lost and alone. She meets lots of strange creatures but none of them seem to understand her or want to be her friend. Then she finds a school playground where the children are happy for her to join in their games, but when a ‘grown-up’ appears, Beegu is alone again. Just as Beegu thinks she will be alone for ever, the mother ship appears and Beegu is reunited with her parents.
A story for anyone who has ever felt lonely, lost and unloved. Children who have experienced loneliness may empathise with Beegu. This book teaches the importance of being kind to others, particularly those who have moved from a different place and may be feeling homesick and anxious.
The children accept Beegu for what she is and it is the adults who reject her because she is different.
