' I don't know what you're thinking of doing, ' said Pippi, 'but as for me, I'm not one who can take things easy. I happen to be a turnupstuffer, so of course I never have a free moment.'
'What did you say you were?' asked Annika.
'What's that?' asked Tommy.
'Somebody who finds the stuff that turns up if only you look, of course. What else would it be?' said Pippi, sweeping together all the flour on the flour into a little pile. 'The whole world is filled with things that are just waiting for someone to come along and find them, and that's just what a turnupstuffer does.
'What sort of things?' asked Annika.
'Oh, all sorts, 'said Pippi. 'Gold nuggets and ostrich feathers and dead mice and rubber bands and tiny little grouse, and that kind of thing.'
from The Amazing Adventures of Pippi Longstocking by Astrid Lindgren
