•’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
`The characters are funny, endearing and completely original. Laura has a wonderfully wild and exciting imagination...she defies boundaries.'See all Product description

This book is a funny, heartwarming collection of Poems, short stories and illustrations by Ms Dockrill. I especially liked her "Rudegirl" poem, which is so true it's hilarious and her imperfect illustrations which are simply... perfect! She is so good because she's very relatible, all her stories will make you giggle and smile with agreement and familiarity, I only wish the book was a bit longer because I read this book in about 30 minutes, so it's not very bulky, but it does give you a great taster of this very talented young Woman and will make you want to see more!
With this Book you also get a Laura Dockrill illustrated wrapping paper sampler, and some stickers which are very cute and funny! I'm officially a fan!
Would recommend to others.
