About the book: 

From what they said to the man at the bus stop, to where you found the remote control, when you're a parent laughing at what gets hurled in your direction is beyond important. 

Laura Quick sketches scenes from daily domestic life on her blog, 'The Daily Think' which has over 24k followers. All the bizarre moments and ridiculous conversations that are part of being a parent are there,from the day Laura's daughter tried to poke her finger into a dog's rear end, to the temper tantrums, and the sense of relief when the school holidays are over. Chronicling all manner of parenting fails and mishaps, the illustrations are welcome light relief for world-weary parents everywhere.

About the author:

Trained as an illustrator, working in art direction, concept development and strategy, Laura Quick is a specialist in editorial illustration and design as well as lookbooks, ad campaigns, and visual merchandising. She has worked closely with fashion photographers, artists and designers for over a decade. Laura began drawing and observing people for her blog, 'The Daily Think' six years ago. Listening and observing at fashion shoots, in meetings, on the bus and, later on, with kids in tow, in the playground. Laura now produces almost all her commercial work off the back of this observational and humorous style.

Working for the likes of The Guardian, AnOther magazine, The BBC, The Royal Opera House, Thames & Hudson and many more, her work moves more towards her fascination in people and their habits, their self-expression and individual characters. The Quick Guide to Parenting encompasses these interests.
