The Onion's Great Escape

Publisher: Phaidon

Award-winning illustrator and designer Sara Fanelli has created a surreal story of a poor little onion who wants to escape the chopping board and the terrible fate of the BIG FRY in this beautifully presented, innovative illustrated book.

Rather than simply reading along with the story, as they turn the pages, readers are invited to imagine, draw and write their own ideas and responses to the onion's inquisitive and challenging questions, and step-by-step to slowly 'free' the press-out onion character from the pages. A witty rhyming text is paired with Sara Fanelli's stylish and idiosyncratic illustrations in this unusual and imaginative book which offers young readers the chance to help to create the story.
