The Crimson Five make their international debut!

When Kia Krumpet and the rest of her Crimson Five team of young inventors head out on the Swirl and Spark Creativity Tour, they are tasked with creating special inventions for twelve cities in twelve months. But there’s a catch: they won’t be allowed to explore until after they complete each task.

Pop the Bronze Balloon continues the award-winning STEM+ series The Crimson Five, building on the inspiring adventures of Flip the Silver Switch and Spin the Golden Light Bulb.


Praise for the Crimson Five series:

Make[s] space for the audience to solve problems alongside the characters.
