"an ingenious work by a persistently imaginative artist. . ." - Steven Heller
"A cross between illustration, philosophy, and paper engineering. . .The Onion's Great Escape challenges the limitations of reading as an interactive experience." - Cool Hunting
". . .a marvelous work of quirky design, offbeat collage, and whimsical paper engineering." - Apartment Therapy
"This vibrant, wacky book. . .demands total sensory immersion. Part drawing pad, part journal, part philosophical exploration." - Dooce
"A technicolor mixed media affair where the main character gets a hand form the reader to escape the "The Big Fry". Part art piece, part picture book, The Onion's Great Escape is most notable because it features an actual onion escape - it pops right out of the book." - 100 Scope Notes's The Wildest Children's Books of 2012
"The book is wonderful for those reluctant readers who need to get their hands into their work. Clear illustrations show how to pull the onion from the book and turn it into a toy. When the "engineer" is done with the book, he or she will end up with a colorful, non-smelling (!) onion friend." - San Francisco Book Review
