Following the death of Alice's popular pie baking aunt, Polly Portman, Alice and her friend Charlie begin a quest to find the recipe for Polly's secret pie crust. Set in Pennsylvania in the 1950's the adventure includes a famous pie baking contest, a mysterious burglar and a cat named Lardo. A quiet, gentle story that evokes an earlier time with a mystery that isn't too scary for the average reader.
