Product description

Judy Horacek's beautiful and brilliantly funny observations are modern icons perfectly distilling the absurdities, foibles and the dilemmas of contemporary life. Ranging from the minutiae of daily living to larger scale global and environmental issues, her cartoons celebrate human creativity and resilience and are permeated with a concern for justice and a desire for laughter. If You Can't Stand the Heat is a wonderful phantasmagoria of ancient fairy tales made new, of penguins, pirates and angels. A scintillating new collection from one of Australia's most loved cartoonists.
