We walked into the kitchen, where my mom had all the ingredients out to make her famous apple pie. Can we go play now? I asked Mom. Sure!

5 What happened? Sydney asked. Mom s pies never look like that! I don t know, but we d better figure it out before Mom sees t h e p i e a n d thinks we did it! I answered. We ran back outside and sat down under the tree. What do you think could have happened, Sydney? maybe Mom dropped the pie when she took it out of the oven. Sydney replied. Is there evidence for that? I asked. I don t remember, we d probably have to go back and check around the oven to see if there s a mess. Let s think of other possibilities first, then we can go back and search the s c e n e of t h e c r i me .

Hey, I bet that some birds smelled the pie and wanted a piece! It s right by the open window! We should go check for little bird footprints, I said. You re right! Sydney exclaimed. And if there aren t any footprints, we can look for other clues while we re in the kitchen. We wa l k e d b a c k i n t o t h e k i t c h e n . M o m wa s s t i l l v a c u u mi n g .
