Review: Chippy Chasers: Chippy Jackpot by Sam Cotton
Sam Cotton's debut graphic novel featuring a group of savvy seagulls is sure to delight readers of all ages. If there is one thing seagulls love, it is chips. It is just a pity that Stanley, Stacey and Steve-O have been deprived of their favourite food, thanks to the driver of a chip van who--while he makes delicious chips--also happens to be a cold hearted seagull swatter, which led to a tragic incident. Can the trio, and their friend worm, defeat Brock and get their share of chips? It is going to take friendship and a lot of innovation to make it work.
This was a fun read from start to finish. I had a good giggle at some of the scenes and illustrations, many of which felt very relatable. (I grew up not so far from the ocean. These days it isn't a trip to Port Noarlunga, Christies Beach, Brighton or Glenelg if I'm not surrounded by seagulls on the hunt for chips. Of course, I know that they shouldn't be eating them, but ...) Anyway, this one is pure fun from beginning to end and will be sure to delight readers young and old.
