'Then one day, a truly magnificent bird flew down out of the sky and landed on the monkey cage.' - The Twits
The Roly-Poly Bird is a magnificent bird who usually lives in the African jungle. He first appears in Roald Dahl's 1978 story The Enormous Crocodile, where the horrible Enormous Crocodile threatens to eat him for lunch. He's too swift by half for the Crocodile though, and quickly flies away before later helping foil Croc's secret plans and clever tricks...
The Roly-Poly Bird has marvellous coloured feathers, likes to travel, and his favourite food is berries, as he tells us in The Enormous Crocodile.
For most people... flying away on holiday is very expensive, but I can fly anywhere in the world for nothing.
