In a book "Gafi le fantome", there is an expression "une pilule de mirliti". I think it means some medicine for a cold, but I cannot find the meaning of "mirliti". Anyone knows the meaning? I appreciate any help.

Mirliti seems to be the name of a mouse character (equivalent of the Tooth fairy) in the "Contes de Mirliti". See the summary of the book.
