What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

From the legendary creator of _Where the Sidewalk Ends, A Light in the Attic, Falling Up,_ and _The Giving Tree_ comes an unforgettable new character in children’s literature: Runny Babbit.

Runny Babbit is Shel Silverstein’s hilarious and _New York Times-_bestselling book of spoonerisms—words or phrases with letters or syllables swapped: bunny rabbit becomes Runny Babbit.

Welcome to the world of Runny Babbit and his friends Toe Jurtle, Skertie Gunk, Rirty Dat, Dungry Hog, Snerry Jake, and many others who speak a topsy-turvy language all their own.

So if you say, “Let’s bead a rook
That’s billy as can se,”
You’re talkin’ Runny Babbit talk,
Just like mim and he.

And don’t miss Runny Babbit Returns, the new book from Shel Silverstein!
