About Beegu

Finding home

Lost on Earth after her spaceship crashes, Beegu wanders off to find some friends.

She is a friendly little creature, but the Earth People don't seem very welcoming at all. So far she has only met the BIG ones; perhaps the little people are a different matter . . .

Alexis Deacon’s much-loved tale about friendship, respect and the importance of including others is brought to life in this heart-warming stage adaptation written and directed by Debbie Hannan.

A modern children’s classic, Beegu was New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Book of the Year and shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal, with Alexis Deacon being named one of Booktrust's ten Best New Illustrators (2008).

A Unicorn production.
