Crunch! by Caolina Rabei (2015)

Crunch is a guinea pig who has everything he needs…breakfast, lunch, and dinner. But he was still missing something. Then one day, a mouse named Cheddar shows up. Cheddar notices all of the food in Crunch’s cage and asks for a bite. Crunch refuses. He won’t even trade one bite for a hug. Later, Crunch regrets his decision. He worries that Cheddar might be hungry or in danger, so he goes out in search of him. He looks everywhere and sees the whole world, but can’t find Cheddar. Crunch goes back to his cage and finds Cheddar there eating the last bite of his food. Instead of getting angry, Crunch is relieved and gives him a big hug!


Sweet story of friendship and sharing. Is it possible to have more than enough and still be missing something important? Crunch finds out what’s missing in his life when a little mouse asks for food in exchange for friendship.

Is there something you could share… extra food, clothing, toys, books? Now would be a great time to make a donation box.

In honor of Cheddar the Mouse, let’s look at some yummy cheddar recipes.
