Could Do Better: School Reports of the Great and Good by Catherine Hurley

From Lord Asquith to Charlotte Church, a selection of often hilarious, sometimes poignant, school reports of the great and the good. A few examples: 'Though her written work is the product of an obviously lively imagination, it is a pity that her spelling derives from the same source' (Beryl Bainbridge) 'His flying off the handle will only mar his efforts, and he must learn tact while not losing his outspokeness' (Jeremy Paxman) 'He is so regular in his irregularity that I really don't know what to do' (Winston Churchill) 'Certainly on the road to failure...hopeless...rather a clown in class...wasting other pupils' time' (John Lennon) 'She must try to be less emotional in her dealings with others' (Diana, Princess of Wales)

An extraordinary collection of rejection letters sent by publishers to now famous writers is sure to entertain and delight readers. Includes rejections of le Carr , Orwell and Joseph Heller. Dedicated to prisoner FF8282 and designed to help fill the time of the bereft millions who have nothing to read until the gates fly open and the world's most missed writer bounces out. The first book by cult cartoonist Dr Parsons, who stalks the corridors of power and pomposity armed with crayons and coloured pencils like some small, bearded avenging god. A selection of often hilarious, sometimes poignant, school reports of the great and the good, including Jeremy Paxman, Harry Enfield, Elton John, John Lennon, Jilly Cooper, Michael Heseltine among others.
