Cricket could recognize that it was stained glass, but she could

"Hold it up to the window," said the Colonel. "You need the

Everyone oohed and ahhhed at the beautiful stained glass window.
"Look, it's Wigglebus! And Angel Guinness, and Henry, and Molly and
There we are! We are IN the window. A stained glass window!"
said Cricket who could not believe her eyes.
"Look real close," said Colonel Kramer. "There is a secret
message engraved into the glass."

"So that's what pawblem solving skills look like," said Patrick.
"Be creative, and keep working until you find a solution."
"That's right!" said the Colonel, filled with satisfaction that Patrick
was listening to his wisdom."
"Find a solution to what?" asked Cricket. "What was the problem?"
"You remembered!" Cricket smiled. "This is BETTER than I ever

"We'll always make it over the next hill," smiled Patrick, with a
huge nod of appreciation to the Colonel.
