I like this one more than some Potters because it's weirdly convoluted and no one's clear what they've just eaten or who needs a doctor. ( )

Imagine being invited to a party and knowing that you could not stomach the meal. That is exactly what happens to this poor little dog, but her plan to avoid the pie does not end as she expected. ( )

In order to avoid eating Ribby the cat’s mouse pie, Dutchess the dog tries to switch it with one of her own. Her plan backfires, and she ends up eating mouse pie anyway. She is convinced she has swallowed the patty pan inside the pie, until she discovers that she has not eaten her own pie, but the pie Ribby made her. Ribby discovers her deception after she leaves, and decides not to invite her to tea again. ( )
