In this richly illustrated book, a town full of people who have never before seen an onion, try to sum up the mysterious vegetable’s essence. But each person approaching the onion jumps immediately and inevitably to the wrong conclusion.
The Onion illustrates how people have a tendency to judge based on random coincidences and rash judgement. It is only when humans approach something with open-minded experimentation that sound and useful conclusions can be reached.
This whimsical story, featuring fabulously detailed spreads, transmits a vital message in a way that adults and children alike will appreciate.
