Sunny – a short story to colour in
Sunny, the onion, is lonely. He’s different from the other vegetables around him. Will he be happy once he goes to be with the other onions or will he find happiness elsewhere and fulfil his destiny? For those who have read Swindon Writing, this is the full-sized version with 11 A4 pages of text and illustrations to colour in.
