When new neighbours move in next door, Eddie is disappointed that there is a new friend for his sister but not for him. But then Tom needs help putting up shelves in the kitchen and asks Eddie to help him as his little girl and Eddie's sister explore the garden together. Soon Eddie is learning to use a saw and hammer and is screwing in hooks to hang cups. Eddie's sister hates bathtime, so Eddie uses some leftover wood to make her a boat to play with in the bath. Next day, as the two families share a picnic lunch in the garden, a cat attacks a sparrow trying to eat the crumbs from the table. So Eddie and Tom decide to build a bird table for the sparrows to eat in safety. Soon Eddie is making and mending all sorts of things around the house. This delightful story about two families becoming friends as seen through Eddie's eyes also includes practical instructions to make some of the things Eddie learns to make. A delightful companion to Eddie's Kitchen and Eddie's Garden, this book will appeal to all children fascinated by tools and making things, and to fans of 'Bob the Builder'.
