The only use I've heard this word is to use as the slang for "rear-end" or "butt".
It's strange that I don't remember reading that word, as it was a rather risqué word for a children's book. (less)

Of the many Boxcar Mystery titles I've read, this is one of the least exciting. That doesn't mean it isn't good. It drives home the "pay attention to your work" and "stay focused on the task at hand" mantras.

There are twists and turns in the lineup of suspicious characters and it is a satisfying read, just not a nail-biter.

There were mouses with no tails. When they were putting chicks in eggs there were some ghosts. And, there were scary messages on the candy hearts.
