Publication Day for The Last Garden
It’s a double whammy for our Agency with the publication of The Last Garden, written by Rachel Ip and illustrated by Anneli Bray. Both Rachel and Anneli are represented by our Agency and formed a great collaborative team to work on this touching picture book.
In a war-torn city, a little girl tends to the last garden. But everyone is leaving and soon the girl has to leave too. The garden is all alone now but soon the seeds scatter throughout the city and the roots take hold.
Inspired by true events in Syria and war gardens around the world and throughout history, The Last Garden is a thoughtful, tender story of hope, touching on issues of conflict and migration, from a talented debut picture book pairing.
Congratulations to both!
