Laura Dockrill

As an adult

Laura Dockrill is an author, illustrator and performance poet whose wonderfully inventive and vibrant approach to life is reflected in the rich and vividly imagined worlds she creates. Laura grew up in Brixton and attended the Brit School and still lives in London. She has always had a vivacious spark, finding creativity in words – from poetry to novels and scripts to song lyrics. She is author of CILIP Carnegie Medal nominated YA novel Lorali and its sequel Aurabel, as well as the Darcy Burdock series for younger readers, which was nominated for the CILIP Carnegie Medal and shortlisted for the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize in 2014. Her debut children’s poetry collection, My Mum’s Growing Down, was published in August 2017 by Faber & Faber. Angry Cookie illustrated by Maria Karipidou is her debut picture book on the Walker list.
