Shinoy and the Chaos Crew


Shinoy is a young boy who loves adventure. His favourite TV programme is ‘The Chaos Crew’ who are a team of action heroes from another reality. Shinoy downloads a ‘Chaos Crew’ app to his phone which has a glitch. This glitch creates a link between Shinoy’s world and the world of his heroes, meaning with the press of a button he can “Call to action … Chaos Crew!”

Created and written by Chris Callaghan, alongside Zoë Clarke (who wrote 7 stories) and illustrated by Amit Tayal. Published as part of the Collins Big Cat series.
