SUDDENLY th© curly yellow ostrich pulled his head out of the ground
again with a Jerk and blinked his big: eyes.
“There’s something the matter with me,” he said. “I believe I’m hun
gry. Yes, I’m sure of It. Very hungryt I should like a railroad spike for
'my dinner, a delicious, tender, railroad spike with a flat top.
Nick and Nancy were relieved to hear this, for they had an Idea that
he might begin on them, as they were so conveniently near.>y
“But whero am I to get a railroad spike in Topsy-Turvey Land?”
went on the ostrich. “I don’t believe there’s even a railroad here, much
less a spike—no, I mean that I don’t believe there is a spike here, much
less a railroad. No, that’s not it, either. Oh, well, it doesn’t matter. The
thing Is, what am I to eat?” And the ostrich blinked his eyes again to
show how fast he was thinking.
“Oh, you naughty bird!” cried Nick. “You’ve eaten our best friend. Now
we’ll never find our monkey!”
“I’ve got it!” he cried. “If I can’t get a spike I’ll have to find something
that looks like one. What was that thing that I saw around here a few
minutes ago, that pushed me and told me to wake up?”
“Oh, that’s our Magical Mushroom!” cried Nancy in alarm. “You
wouldn’t eat it!”
But she was too late. Before she could stop to put their little fairy
friend into her pocket, the ostrich made a quick dive with his ,beak and
gulp—the Mushroom was gone! All tiiey could see of it was the big lump
that kept going? farther and farther down the ostrich’s long neck.
“Oh, you naughty bird!” cried Nick. “You’ve eaten our best friend.
Now we’ll never find our monkey!”
But what the ostrich replied sounded exactly like bird talk; the twins
couldn't make out a word. The Mushroom was not there to help them
