The Onion’s Great Escape

Sara Fanelli

A unique children’s activity book by award-winning illustrator Sara Fanelli, whose experimental, collage-based style is frequently imitated but never bettered.


Highly regarded worldwide, Sara Fanelli’s distinctive artistic style is known for being exciting and stimulating, and this is precisely what we get with her new book. I’m sure it will be interpreted many ways and of course this is what Fanelli wants, as it is basically philosophy for kids (though it will appeal to any age) with a twist … you have to save the onion! Why an onion?

My take is that each layer of the onion is like part of our consciousness or personality and as we examine and appreciate each layer, we finally get to the core or heart of the onion/person and understand the whole better. Fanelli starts with ‘think about what you know, not just what you’ve been taught’.

It’s an eccentric activity book that will challenge, fascinate and enthuse creative minds. You even get to free a kooky, delightful onion, if you dare!

For ages nine and up.
