Rachel Ip has always loved language and literature. After studying modern languages and linguistics at Cambridge University, Rachel worked in marketing communications for over 10 years.
She was born in the UK and has lived in France, Belgium and Hong Kong. She speaks French, German and just enough Cantonese that she won’t get lost or go hungry.
She has spent the last 10 years in Hong Kong, where she now lives with her family.
Rachel’s debut picture book was published by Hodder in 2020.
Amelia’s granny forgets lots of things. Little things, like where she put her glasses, and big things like people and places. But everything anyone has ever forgotten is stored in The Forgettery, and there Amelia and her granny learn the power of making memories.
Filled with warmth and gentle humour, The Forgettery is a beautifully written, sensitive look at dementia and memory loss.

The Last Garden
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. Slowly people return to the city and the little girl returns to her garden. The city blooms again.
Inspired by true events in Syria, The Last Garden is a thoughtful, tender story of hope, touching on issues of conflict and migration.
