239H: Animal steals a cherry pie from window sill (Solved!)

I was read this book by my mom when I was about 7 years old. It was probably published before 1995. It’s part of a collection of stories, possibly with the word “treasury” or “collection” in the title. The book was hardcover, a royal blue color, maybe a little bigger than a standard piece of computer paper, and about an inch thick. It may have been designed to be a bedtime book, but I don’t remember anything about sleeping.

I don’t remember anything other than a bit about one of the stories. I think they may have all been about animals, though. The one story I do remember involved a raccoon or black and white animal (but not a skunk) that steals a pie that was set to cool on a different animal’s window sill. I think the pie was cherry and had a lattice top crust.

Please help me find this book. I’d love to read it to my son.

    Did it also have a story about a goat who loved to paint and she made her husband mad because she’d stir pots of food with her loaded paintbrushes? I don’t remember the title, I’m sorry, but I’ve been looking for this book for almost 30 years.

    I have the old children’s book “Who Cried For Cherry Pie?” That fits the individual story’s description.

    I feel like I might be looking for a similar series of books. The one I can remember has a bunch of different animals as well. I’m thinking one story is about a rain storm or a flood and maybe some of the younger animals floating down a river/creek? If that rings a bell.

    I know exactly what you’re talking about. I think it’s a racoon. They cover a roof with butter to try to stop him.

    I vaguely remember a story/poem about a pie on a sill and the line “it will come again.” I guess someone/something stole the pie. Anybody know the title?
