Fergal Onions
by John Harrison

Fergal Onions watches lots of television. Then, one morning, he hears the sweet sound of a violin float through his window - a tune that is strangely familiar

Gradually, Fergal’s love of music is reawakened. Suddenly, television isn’t so important. Everything changes for him


Fergal Onions is a whimsical tale with gentle humour and an important message. Fergal is isolated by his attachment to the television but, through music, enjoys new friendships. Children will love the story and adore the images

Fergal Onions was awarded a CBCA Notable Book in the 2005 CBCA awards

For preschool/?early primary school children.

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 a 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.
