Product description

Review

•’Laura Dockrill is a singular talent in the rave new world world of poetry. Comparison to others would do her no justice. Bright, funny, intelligent and passionate, this is a book you should already be taking away from the shop…’ Phill Jupitus

• ‘Mistakes in the Background is an absolute treat …it’s about pure, old-school imagination and art. The poetry shines with playful juvenilia, discussing everything from childhood memories and sibling feuds to croissants, robots and opinionated inanimate objects. It often runs like stream-of-consciousness prose, and is both articulate and wildly creative. The passion that has created this work is evident in every sentence and illustration.’ Wears the Trousers Magazine

Review

`The characters are funny, endearing and completely original. Laura has a wonderfully wild and exciting imagination...she defies boundaries.'
