Sara Fanelli's activity book, an exciting first for Phaidon Press, asks young readers to help the onion break free by answering thought-provoking questions and completing the activities within, finally pressing a three-dimensional character right out of the pages.

  • An inquisitive and thoughtful young onion is desperate to escape the sharp kitchen knives and the 'big fry' she needs your help!
  • The Onion's Great Escape asks young readers to help the onion break free by adding their own thoughts, illustrations and solutions to its vibrant pages, finally pressing a three-dimensional character right out of the book
  • Encourages young children to be imaginative and think about complex issues in unexpected ways
  • The first in a series of 'disappearing books' that ask readers to create an entirely different book from the one they started with
