It's the 3rd book in the Doodle series from Zifflin, following the hugely successful Doodle Invasion and Doodle Fusion.
Fans of the series will know the score- these books are crammed to the brim with illustration, usually in the form of hundreds of strange creatures that get up to mischief between the pages. Chaos is certainly an apt description of this book; there's barely a place for your eyes to rest as there is action and movement everywhere, a pandemonium of activity. The characters are all very peculiar and wild, the only recognisable animals being the little penguins and monkeys that are scattered throughout.
The paper isn't anything special, it's rather thin and average printer paper quality, but waterbased pens do not bleed which is a bonus. The book is a paperback with a partially coloured glossy card cover- pretty much the same as the previous Zifflin books. It's much more similar to Doodle Fusion than Invasion, both at first glance and the style of illustration, so if you loved Fusion you will almost definitely love Chaos. It's a little too crazy for me, some of the images making my eyes go funny, but if anything I can totally appreciate the sheer amount of work that has gone into creating this book! You're certainly getting your money's worth in terms of colouring hours.
Here's my finished picture, coloured with Staedtler Triplus felt pens.
