I read this sentence in one of my son's picture books:
"The tire was squashed, the tire was smooshed."
(It's talking about a bike).
The word "smoosh" is strange to me, so I consulted some dictionaries and it surprised me that I couldn't even find an entry for "smoosh".
What does it mean? How come it can't be found in dictionaries but can be found in a kid's book???
