LAURIE: The Boy Who Lived

The first half of the book is a collection of Laurie’s own writing, from when he was little until he became ill. It includes school projects, short stories, poems, and letters, many lit with his quirky sense of humour, many poignant, some surprisingly mature.

The second half consists of tributes from relatives and family friends, from his school friends both in America and England, from teachers and medics, as well as the addresses given by his parents at the celebrations of his life. The book is illustrated with photographs, and with Laurie’s own drawings.
