Mystery of Missing Socks Solved in Delightful Tale About Mischievous Little Monster

When the “sock monster” strikes again, tight-knit sisters Sydney and Kennedy take on the task of solving the mystery in the delightful new children’s book, Sassy Sisters vs The Sock Monster.

The fun begins when younger sister Sydney overhears their parents talking about missing socks. Bold and fearless, Sydney hatches a plan to catch the mysterious sock monster and convinces her big sister to come along for the ride.

The girls eventually discover that this particular monster means no harm — she just happens to like some of their things and wants to keep them! That’s when the perfect pair of sassy sisters have to step in and set the record straight to save their family’s socks.

Author Jacquese Groves used her own daughters’ personalities and childhood experiences to inform her relatable, engaging young characters. The perfect bedtime story for parents who read to young children, or for solo readers ages 4-8, Sassy Sisters is a beautifully illustrated, entertaining tale that, on the surface, is about a mischievous little monster with a penchant for socks. But at its core, Sassy Sisters is an uplifting, empowering story representing the amazing things that young minds can accomplish when they work together to solve problems.
