Chippy Chasers: Chippy Jackpot

Sam Cotton

Who loves a delicious, hot, salty chippy? Seagull mates Steve-O, Stanley and Stacey do … 

A hilarious graphic novel for readers aged 6+ from actor, animator and Tiktok sensation Sam Cotton.   

On a sunny Sydney wharf, Stacey and Stanley watch enviously as customers feed on as many hot salty chippies as they want. Fed up with having to scab for scraps with all the other seagulls, they seek out legendary chippy thief Steve-O to help them pull off the ultimate heist …     

But first they’ll have to get past a seagull-hating chippy chef, deal with some bully bin chickens, and convince the World’s Best Chippy Chaser to overcome his dark past and join the team.


Chippy jackpot! Can’t argue with a title like that, hey? This is a graphic-novel chapter book, and it is very funny.

It’s bedtime in Sydney and Grandgull has the kids enthralled with a dramatic heist story from days gone by: a trio of seagulls – Stanley, Steve-O and Stacey – and their worm sidekick, Wormy, are scheming to get at the best, most beautiful, tastiest chippies ever. Will things go to plan? Or will things descend into chaos? All I can reveal is that as with all good action adventures, there’s a workout montage included, and I laughed heaps.

Sam Cotton’s art style is simple yet charming, with expressive eyebrows that do some heavy lifting. Chippy Chasers: Chippy Jackpot is obviously a great choice for Real Pigeons connoisseurs who are looking to branch out into different species of urban bird antics.

There’s an author’s note at the back of this book that sums it all up perfectly: ‘Birds are natural comedians. Everything about them makes me laugh. And I find their passion for chippies something I can relate to big time! Eating good hot chips is one of life’s ultimate pleasures.’ I wholeheartedly agree. For ages 6+.
