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.
Sofia Eldarova was born in Moscow to a family of artists and was raised in Baku, on the sunny shores of the Caspian Sea. She now lives with her family in London, England. Visit her website at

Editorial Reviews

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." -Booklist "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." -Kirkus "
