There is no real "problem" in this story other than Grandma's compulsive lying, and even this is portrayed in a humorous way.

The lact of a real conflict and the meandering story line (events really aren't that tied together) is one reproach critics make of this otherwise very entertaining children's book.

Maybe this lack of cohesion is the "problem" your teacher is hinting at!
