rattus pingues et stolidus, forsooth.....

My daughter has just purchased (at a Christian Aid book sale) a copy of Harrius Potter et Philosophi Lapis. For anyone who has ever wondered how

Sunshine, daisies, butter mellow,
Turn this stupid fat rat yellow

would be rendered into Latin, the answer is:

miteque butyrum bellesque et lumina solis alloquor et precibus numina vestra colo.
rattum habeo pinguem et stolidum. vultisne colorem mutare in croceum? numina vestra colam.

So now you know.
