Suitable for ages 2-5
Handa travels to her friend Akeyo with seven different fruits as a surprise, but seven different animals have seven very different ideas… could you resist the sweet-smelling guava? How about a ripe red mango or a tangy purple passionfruit?
A blend of physical performance, puppetry, live music and song combine to create an intimate, magical production with audience participation.
Based on the original book Handa’s Surprise, written and illustrated by Eileen Browne. Published by Walker Books Ltd.
