We can't believe he's in our school.
We have been so fortunate to have the author of 'Beegu' and 'I Am Henry Finch' Alexis Deacon in school today. He read his story 'Slow Loris' and we were so captivated. Alexis then explained the journey of how he created the character Beegu. He originally wanted to create a story about a bear but the publishers thought it would be too scary for children. He eventually played around with it until he got to the alien Beegu.
