Storytime
The Bomb

Is there anything more Kiwi than the classic bomb into the water? Sacha Cotter’s endearing story tells the tale of a young boy searching for the perfect bomb. With help from his dear Nan will he find the courage to show his unique style and pull off a booming, splashing slapping bomb? Narrator Troy Kingi and musicians from the NZSO bring this story to life with original music from New Zealand composer Claire Cowan.

Presented in association with Read NZ Te Pou Muramura.
