  4. Great story telling. The vertical balance works very well with the tension between the characters. My eye keeps roving up and down taking in more and more delicious details.

  6. This is great. But the mouse prefers the hard pea over that juicy sandwich?

  7. Wait, what's the mouse throwing? Isn't this a take on the Princess and the Pea?

    1. Hi Ted! The rabbit is throwing a semisweet chocolate morsel which he retrieved from between the mattresses. Yes, it's a parody on the Princess and the Pea fairytale. Buttercup is certain that tiny morsel is causing her discomfort – it couldn't possibly be the sandwich!

  12. Haha, so great! That mouse is really putting on a great act up there, he may deserve an Oscar! I just love all the mattress and sandwich details. And their little framed picture on the wall, too cute! Just beautiful. Also wow, what kind of bread did you use, it is holding up remarkably well! ;)

  14. I just love this! I agree with everybody else's comments, especially the fact that I didn't see the sandwich immediately and the mouse acting out. Wonderful!
