The Origin of the Onion

Mrs. Ramsey's third grade class at Chesterfield School in Chesterfield, New Hampshire, had a question about THE MYSTERIOUS GIANT OF BARLETTA.

Q: We know that this story is a folktale, but we wondered if you got the idea for the onion in the story from the ball that the real statue is holding.
A: The onion was in the original folktale that I retold.
