My name is Monique Scott and I am a local illustrator and author promoting my new self published children’s book ‘Two Little Mice’.

I have recently finished a mini story time event tour around Consett and Stanley area. The story time event includes myself reading Two Little Mice to children from ages 4 and above which is followed by a fun mini craft session showing the children how to make paper mice, then ending with a book signing.

The story is based on myself and my boyfriend Steven O’Neill. We bought our first house together in 2015. It was a lot of hard work renovating our home around our full time jobs. This was a brilliant idea for a storyline which included a powerful message to teach children using vibrant and beautiful illustrations. In the book the two little mice work together as a team, through the good times and the bad, to build their perfect home.

Since my book has been printed, it has been a massive hit! I did not expect so much positive feedback. Friends, family and members of the public have, without hesitation, helped promote me and advertise my book. I have been so touched with all the love and support from everyone.

I now organise local story time events which are followed by a mini craft session and book signings which have taken place in Consett Library, Stanley Library, Juliana’s Craft and Gallery and local children’s nurseries.

My book is now available on and if you would like to get in touch to organise a story time event please follow me on facebook: uniquemoniquecreative
