Edited by Rachel McAlpine and illustrated by David Elliott

Through my house in sunny weather
Flies the Dictionary Bird
Clear to see on every feather
is some outlandish word.

'Hugger Mugger" "gimcrack" "guava"
"waggish" "mizzle" "swashing rain"
Bird, fly back into my kitchen
Let me read those words again.
(Margaret Mahy)
