Zapiro comes of age in this 21st annual.
Zuma once again takes centre stage for all the wrong reasons along with his cronies the Guptas and his nemesis Malema. It’s the year of the hashtag. #RhodesMustFall begat #FeesMustFall, also #Racism/#Sexism and #ZumaMustFall. With Nenegate and SARS wars, it’s the rand that’s really falling. Meanwhile, Pravin and Thuli fight the good fight.
Each cartoon is worth a thousand words and helps us make sense of our crazy, beautiful country where fact is indeed stranger than fiction.
Zapiro needs no introduction. His 19th annual speaks for itself.
No year would be complete without Zapiro’s annual collection of cartoons, and in this latest book of sharp-witted and well-timed cartoons, Zapiro once again proves himself a satirical genius, ensuring that no event passes by without comment … or a laugh.
From the arms deal to the courtroom, from his own wedding(s) to the Gupta wedding, see if you can spot Jacob Zuma in these hilarious cartoons. Find him in the election queue, in Parliament and at Nkandla. Whether he’s travelling in a bluelight brigade or in the darkness thanks to loadshedding, can you see him?
And that's not all. You can also look out for Julius Malema, Helen Zille, the Shaik brothers, Barack Obama, Sepp Blatter, Steve Hofmeyr, Oscar Pistorius and many many more!
If you’re an adult with a political sense of humour, this book is for you. And kids might enjoy it too.

Julie Houts has cultivated a devoted following as ‘Instagram’s favourite illustrator’ (Vogue) by lampooning the conflicting messages and images women consume and share with the world every day. A collection of darkly comic illustrated essays, Literally Me chronicles the daily exploits of ‘slightly antisocial heroines’ (Refinery29) in vivid, excruciatingly funny detail, including:
- The beauty routine of a deranged bride who aspires to be ‘truly without flaws’ on her wedding day
- What happens when Kylie Jenner has an existential crisis and can no longer ‘step out’
- A journey to Coachella by the Four Horsewomen of the Apocalypse
- The true dating confessions of a fembot
- The terrifying description for Alice Staunch’s book How to be the Perfect Feminist
Literally Me marks the launch of a brilliant new social satirist. Julie’s singular voice and beautiful illustrations reveal the truth about the absurdity of life in the social media age: the line between becoming a total ‘Girlboss’ and a 21st-century American Psycho is razor-thin.
"A Girl's Guide to Personal Hygiene is everything I never knew I wanted: a disgusting, hilarious, and honest book that pays tribute to the female body and all of its habits and suppurations. It is delightfully and uncomfortably relatable and I love it with my whole self―heart, sweat, bowels, and all."―Carmen Maria Machado, author of Her Body and Other Parties
We sniff our knickers; we bite our own toenails; we laboriously dig out ingrown hairs: Women aren't as ladylike as people would like to imagine. Using anecdotes collected from hundreds of anonymous sources, this gleefully disgusting illustrated book rewrites our definition of femininity.
One day, the artist Tallulah Pomeroy overhead a conversation between two girls about another friend of theirs they knew in college. Apparently, when this friend had been on tour with the rugby team, she'd drunkenly 'done a shit in the sink.' 'She's not a girl if she did that,' said one to the other. 'She may have a vagina, but she's not a girl.'
This exchange made Tallulah laugh, but it also made her think. How many things had her friends done that meant they 'weren't girls?' She made a Facebook group and asked people to submit stories about their 'unladylike' behaviors. The page was soon flooded with more stories than she could have ever imagined: about ear wax and trapped wind, gray pubes and bloody pajamas. It became a community of honest, funny, and supportive women, who, by admitting to things they'd thought were shameful, no longer had to feel ashamed.
For A Girl's Guide to Personal Hygiene, Tallulah made original illustrations to accompany a selection of those Facebook posts―plus dozens more from an expanded call for submissions―to create an exuberant and galvanizing handbook for all the nasty women of the world.

Few contemporaries captured Britain's indomitable wartime spirit as well or as wittily as the cartoonist Carl Giles. Now, for the first time, the very best of the cartoons he produced between 1939 and 1945 are brought together, including many that have not seen the light of day in over 75 years. As a young cartoonist at Reynold's News and then the Daily Express, Giles's work provided a crucial morale boost - and much-needed laughs - to a population suffering daily privations and danger, and Giles's War shows why. Here are his often hilarious takes on the great events of the war - from the Fall of France, via D-Day, to the final Allied victory - but also his wryly amusing depictions of ordinary people in extraordinary times, living in bombed-out streets, dealing with food shortages, coping with blackouts, railing against bureaucracy and everyday annoyances. It's a brilliantly funny chronicle of our nation's finest hour, as well as a fitting tribute to one of our greatest cartoonists.

Our most cherished cartoon bird shares his wisdom on life in this beautifully produced gift book for all generations. From his perch on top of Snoopy's doghouse, Woodstock spends his days trying (and failing) to fly, falling in love with worms, and striving to be an exemplary secretary to Snoopy. For the millions of faithful Charles Schulz fans, and those who fondly remember Snoopy's scrappy side-kick, this is the first in a new series to cherish that will see the beguiling Peanuts gang share their sentiments on everything from food to friendship.
South Africans calling for our moral compass to be reactivated need look no further than Zapiro's latest annual, The Last Sushi.

Set out in a new format with beautiful new illustrations, Oor Wullie's Letter to Santa will appeal to the many thousands of Oor Wullie fans around the world. But will Santa deliver a present to Oor Wullie this Christmas? And how will he reply to Wullie's heartfelt poem? With a poem of his own, of course!
