The Marzipan Pig (Children's book, 1986)

No one realizes that the poor marzipan pig has fallen behind the sofa. No one hears his lonely cries for help. His sweetness grows bitter over the months that go by until a mouse discovers him and gobbles him up.

But the mouse pays a price for her greed. A desperate feeling of loneliness and yearning for love passes into her from the marzipan pig, who has triggered off a startling chain of events featuring an owl, a hibiscus and a mouse dressed in a pink frock!
