Stickmen Bumper Edition, by Peter Vegas (Random House, RRP $19.99):

If you’ve spent any time at all on the internet, you’ve probably come across some of those cute little stickmen jokes and had a wee giggle.

But did you know that there are literally hundreds of the little suckers?

Peter Vegan, the artistic genius behind the comic line-drawings, has already released a couple of books containing his work and now there’s a bumper edition, pocket sized and packed full of some of the silliest (but in a good way) little drawings you could hope to find.

At just under $20 it could be the best money you spend this summer because let’s be honest, anything that keeps you entertained for an hour or two is good value.
