    Hurrah for Gin's cartoon illustrations have struck a chord with many parents, but now it's time for the foul-mouthed and highly opinionated 2 1/4-year-old Archie Adams (also created by Katie Kirby) to have his say...

    It reveals just how hard life is for Archie. He's always being told what to do ('Eat your tea, Archie', 'Stop putting Mummy's phone in the bin, Archie') and now he's just found out that his parents are going to replace him with a younger sibling.

    There are also cartoon showing Archie's friend Amelie teaching him the good swear words and his penchant for naked protests. Honest, emotional and laugh-out-loud, this is a hilarious, no-holds-barred account of what it's like to be a toddler.

    Please note this book contains language some may deem inappropriate.

    Have you ever wondered what kind of questions history's greatest figures would type into search engines if they'd existed during their time?

    This lively and hilarious book looks at the kind of things Charles Dickens would research while writing his latest novel ('things urchins say'), how Henry VIII would look up relationship advice ('breaking bad news to women from Cleeves') and Karl Marx would build up his knowledge ('cheating at Monopoly').

    With some naughty humour and strong language, this is a great gift book for any history buff and will inspire you to ponder what other questions historical figures would ask... You can't fail to laugh out loud.

    CAN WOMEN BE GENIUSES? OR ARE THEIR ARMS TOO SHORT? WHY DID WE ONLY LEARN ABOUT THREE WOMEN AT SCHOOL? WHAT WERE ALL THE OTHERS DOING? The Trouble With Women does for girls what 1066 and All That did for boys: it reminds us of what we were taught about women in history lessons at school, which is to say, not a lot. A brilliantly witty book of cartoons, it reveals some of our greatest thinkers' baffling theories about women. We learn that even Charles Darwin, long celebrated for his open, objective scientific mind, believed that women would never achieve anything important, because of their smaller brains. Get ready to laugh, wince and rescue forgotten women from the 'dustbin of history', whilst keeping a close eye out for tell-tale 'genius hair'. You will never look at history in the same way again.

    These casually drawn, perfectly on-point comics by the hugely popular young Brooklyn-based artist Sarah Andersen are for the rest of us. They document the wasting of entire beautiful weekends on the internet, the unbearable agony of holding hands on the street with a gorgeous guy, and dreaming all day of getting home and back into pajamas. In other words, the horrors and awkwardnesses of young modern life. Oh and they are totally not autobiographical. At all. Adulthood Is a Myth presents many fan favorites plus dozens of all-new comics exclusive to this book. Like the work of fellow Millennial authors Allie Brosh, Grace Helbig, and Gemma Correll, Sarah's frankness on personal issues like body image, self-consciousness, introversion, relationships, and the frequency of bra-washing makes her comics highly relatable and deeply hilarious.

    He turns up first as Snoopy's secretary, then gradually becomes a good friend whom Snoopy helps to fly South ...but it's not until 22 June 1970 that the little bird gains a name, in a perfect salute to the decade that ends with this volume: Woodstock! In other timely stories, Peppermint Patty runs afoul of her school's dress code (those sandals!), Lucy declares herself a New Feminist,A" and Snoopy's return to the Daisy Hill Puppy Farm on a speaking engagement climaxes in a riot and a new love found amidst the teargas ( She had the softest paws...A"). Speaking of Snoopy, this volume falls under the sign of the Great Beagle, as three separate storylines focus on the mysterious sovereign of Beagledom. First Snoopy is summoned by a wrathful G.B. when Frieda submits a complaint about his (Snoopy's) desultory rabbit-chasing efforts; then, back in the Great one's good graces, Snoopy is sent on a secret mission; and finally he himself ascends (briefly!) to the mantle of Great Beagledom. In other news, an exasperated Lucy throws Schroeder's piano into the maw of the kite-eating tree, with gruesome results...Miss Othmar goes on strike and Linus gets involved...Charlie Brown's baseball team has an actual (brief) winning streak. ..Snoopy's quest to compete in the Oakland ice skating competition is thwarted by his inability to find a partner...Charlie Brown goes to a banquet to meet his hapless baseball hero Joe Shlabotnik...Snoopy is left in the Van Pelt family's care as Charlie and Sally Brown head out of town for a vacation...and (alas) the Little Red-Haired Girl moves away...This volume also features a new introduction by renowned illustrator Mo Willems and, as always, gorgeous design by award-winning cartoonist Seth.

    A masterpiece of comic brilliance, The Complete Far Side contains every Far Side cartoon every syndicated-over 4,000 if you must know-presented in (more or less) chronological order by year of publication, with more than 1,100 that have never before appeared in a book. Also included are additional Far Side cartoons Larson created after his retirement: 13 that appeared in the last Far Side book, Last Chapter and Worse, and six cartoons that periodically ran as a special feature in the New York Times Science Times section as The Far Side of Science. Creator Gary Larson offers a rare glimpse into the mind of The Far Side in quirky and thoughtful introductions to each of the 14 chapters. Complaint letters, fan letters, and queries from puzzled readers appear alongside some of the more provocative or elusive panels. Actor, author, and comedian Steve Martin offers his pithy thoughts in a foreword, and Gary Larson's former editor describes what it was like to be "the guy who could explain every Far Side cartoon."
