Storytime
The Stolen Stars of Matariki

When Grandma notices two of the Stars of Matariki are missing, it’s up to her mokopuna Sam and Te Rerehua to find them. Miriama Kamo’s enchanting story takes us on an adventure as Sam and Te Rerehua find the fairy-like patupaiarehe and try to trick them into giving back the stars. Will they succeed? 

Author Miriama Kamo joins musicians from the NZSO as they bring this story to life with original music from New Zealand composer Claire Cowan.

Presented in association with Read NZ Te Pou Muramura.
