Why does slicing onions make us cry? Award-winning children's book writer Augie Rivera cooks up an original story on the origin of the onion with a dash of the comic, the bizarre, and the grim flavor of old-fashioned folktales.
The fascinating art of National Book Award-winning children's book illustrator Jason Moss spices up this fantastic tale of a deceitful child, her loving parents, and a many-eyed goddess.
