Mission Synopsis

All is not well in StoryWorld… not well at all! The dastardly Story Thief is at large and causing havoc! He has been taking well-loved story characters and putting them in the wrong StoryWorld. Poor old Puss in Boots is lost in The Jungle Book, Cinderella’s shoe has been stolen by Robin Hood, the Queen of Hearts has put Goldilocks in jail at the back of the croquet ground, and the Gingerbread Man has been eaten by Hansel and Gretel!

Sherlock Holmes has been in touch with The Hive. Yes, even the Great Sherlock is stuck. He can't figure out how to catch the thief, or even where he's hiding. There are just too many worlds... We can't let him down. We've got to help! We will need to use our best hunting and surviving skills though. How will we navigate the woods? How are we going to make it alive in the jungle? And what about the deadly rose garden? We will also need to fix the messes that he’s made along the way: tracking Robin Hood, presenting a case in Goldilock’s trial, making the Gingerbread Man again from scratch, and who even knows what else!?

The situation is bad, and it’s only getting worse! We need to act fast! Using our best operatives we must sort this mess out and give these stories the happily-ever-afters they deserve!

A FAST AND FURIOUS ADVENTURE AROUND STORYWORLD WITH LOTS OF STORY-TELLING, LITERACY AND MAKE BELIEVE.

RECOMMENDED AGE RANGE
5 1/2 - 8 (Years 1 - 4). Please note that this is only a recommendation. In our experience, stories and adventures really engage children up to around 8. Every child is different however and you know your child best! If you are unsure and would like to talk through with us, please free to call or email the team. We'll be very happy to advise.
