In this fresh and inventive second picture book, from the author of the popular Slow Loris, meet Beegu, a beguiling character with three eyes and long, floppy ears

Beegu is not supposed to be on Earth. She is lost. She is a friendly little creature, but the Earth People don't seem very welcoming at all. However, so far she has only met the BIG ones. The little ones are a different matter.
