MUK – een muzikale voorleesvoorstelling | De Grote Haay 2+

Muk is a Dalmatian puppy: you know, the spotty one. He would prefer to have many more dots, or how about colored dots?

Muk experiences old-fashioned adventures in his own picture book series. He was in the top 10 picture books of the National Reading Days and even experienced a musical adventure with the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra.

In this interactive reading performance, Muk and his friend Vlieg discover the world around them. With songs, puppets and lots of dots.
