I was thinking about the children's book "Who Cried for Pie?" by someone named Veronica Buffington. (The book is not long enough to be a novel, so its title is in quotation marks and not italicized.) I read it in school in first grade.
In the book, it always has questions and answers, both of which are given by the girl narrating the story. She reveals she wanted cherry pie at the beginning, and she picks cherries, her grandmother mixes the pastry, her mother rolls it out, her grandfather fills it with the cherries, but before any more steps are taken... someone steals the pie, but it is never explained because not even the narrator knows who. However, it is recovered, as the girl's father puts the pie in the oven, and then, the girl herself puts it in the windowsill to cool it, but not only does she not get any pie, neither does her family. Her mother does find it, but she finds it eaten, and guess who ate it? Their dog, Humphrey did. They get so angry with him for it that not only does the girl cry for cherry pie, so do her parents and grandparents, and it ends with Humphrey sitting in a corner.
