how it all began.

After Monique caught her mischievous but sweet sausage dog, Rocky, stuffing his face with bread that was left on a table, she knew that he was a bit of a troublemaker. She soon realised that this was only one story of many and started thinking about how she could share them. While Monique and Kate were eating delicious food and indulging in a cheeky beverage, they got chatting and realised they could join forces and fulfil Monique's life long dream of writing a children's storybook. With Monique's wonderful way with words, and Kate's rad illustration skills, they created The Silly Sausage Stories. A series that follows the adventures of Rocky, as well as teaches us a all a bit of a lesson.
