Conflict
When Polly Portman passes away, she takes with her the secret to her famous pie crust recipe. In her will, Polly Portman leaves a message to Alice stating that Polly is leaving the recipe to her cat, Lardo, and leaves Lardo in the care of Alice. The problem is that everybody wants her recipe! Suddenly, the whole town is wondering how you leave a recipe to a cat! Everyone in town is now making pies to hopefully win the pie contest held each year since Polly Portman is not around anymore. While everyone in town is busy making pies, someone broke into Polly Portman's PIE shop to try to find Lardo for the secret pie crust recipe. This leaves Alice trying to find who is going to steal Lardo as well as keeping the secret pie crust recipe safe with lots of help from Charlie.
