Fergal Onions

Picture of Fergal Onions
Fergal Onions is led away from a life at the TV screen to dust down his saxophone and return to his pre-couch life after he hears his neighbour's young daughter playing Mozart on her violin. This is a delightful picture book that crosses generational boundaries. It has light- hearted essence but underneath it is a cautionary tale of what can happen if we just drift along in our comfort zone without really engaging with life. It is also a book of friendship with strong and quirky illustrations.
