The Top Gear mystery remains: “Who is the Stig?” Since last year we can pop another question: “Where’s Stig?” In the book by illustrator Rod Hunt, you need to spot the popular racing driver of the Top Gear team. And take our word for it: this doesn’t come easy, as Hunt’s artworks are complex illustrations with loads of detail.
