About the book

Two mouse friends have two distinctly different uses for leftovers. 


Edgar loves to build with them. 


Toby loves to eat them. 


This makes life challenging. 


So Edgar sets out to find someone who will appreciate his creations as art, and not as lunch. 


This sly, appealingly understated, and warm-hearted book is the American debut of the author/illustrator Sofia Eldarova.


"The clever, quirky, and whimsical text complements the detailed pencil-drawn illustrations of a city landscape, as the author anthropomorphizes mice to convey the story’s more cerebral meanings." 



"Eldarova's droll text and vivid illustrations complement each other like macaroni and cheese, demonstrated in tension-creating page turns and effective double-page spreads. There's room on the bookshelf for this yummy friendship-themed picture book."
