We all know that seagulls love hot chips!

So when Grangull agrees to tell the baby gulls one bedtime story, they hear about the adventures of Stanley and Stacey and their quest to get to the best hot chips around - those cooked by Brock in his famous chippy van.

In order to come up with a plan to get to the chips and to get past Brock (who hates seagulls), they decide that they are going to need some help, so they set out to track down legendary chippy chaser Steve-O. But Steve-O feels guilty after his last quest for chips ended in his best friend Sonny’s demise. But the calling of chippies is strong! Can they all work together to get their hands on the best chippy jackpot ever?

This is a great fun read for primary students. It is humorous, with themes of friendship, working together, forgiveness and believing in yourself.
