The Wombats then need to work out what to do when you have too many pairs of Sparkle Pants and what kind of game Zadie, CeCe, Clyde and Carly can play that’s fun for all. Then, Louisa hatches a plan to trade mud pies for stickers, but Zeke can’t remember the recipe, and Zadie learns how to take a photo that will bring students to a class to help inspire Mr. E.
