Author(s): Sara Fanelli
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.
