Roald Dahl Word of the Week: mushious

mushious (adjective)

Definition: Something that is mushious is both mushy and delicious.

‘It’s luscious, it’s super,
It’s mushious, it’s duper,
It’s better than rotten old fish.
You mash it and munch,
You chew it and crunch it!
It’s lovely to hear it go squish!’
The Enormous Crocodile
