Welcome to the place where anything goes as Andy and Terry’s treehouse continues to grow, built on only the power of imagination, and friendship. But that friendship is pushed to the limit in this latest episode as the treehouse movie being filmed by Mr Big Shot features only one half of the charismatic duo. With Terry the unexpected star, Andy is left out in the cold but ah, here is how the true narrative of The 78-Storey Treehouse unfolds.
Adding a further 13 levels to their treehouse, Andy’s antics in the new Scribbletorium and his high-security potato chip storage facility (guarded by an angry duck) play out in tandem to Mr Big Shot’s treehouse epic. The kids were transfixed and thoroughly entertained as they watched Andy battle first jealousy over being replaced by Mel Gibbon the monkey and later battle Terry in interstellar combat.
But between black holes, a pair of devious spy-cows and a funky combining machine (yet another Andy and Terry invention); will the Treehouse Blockbuster actually get made? Will our favourite authors become famous? And most importantly, will Andy and Terry’s friendship survive?
The greatest invention which never fails to come out of Andy and Terry’s Treehouse adventures is undoubtedly their ability to relate to what kids want. They make them laugh, they make them wonder and most of all they make them delve into the depths of their imagination.
The people who brought you The 13-, 26- and 52-Storey Treehouses Live on Stage are back with a blockbuster bang… just remember to moo-ve quickly if you want a front row seat to their latest adventure!
