Using just 19 words in total (Yes and No repeated), this limited-word manuscript documents the adventures of an enterprising raccoon¹s (or perhaps possum¹s) efforts to steal fresh pie from a home, and the highs and lows which follow as it alternates between besting, and being defeated by, the home¹s domestic pets. The story explores themes of persistence, friendship and sharing.
