Runny Babbit Rook Beview

Have you seen the book, Runny Babbit - A Billy Sook, by Shel Silverstein? It's adorable, and the perfect book to give kids of any age in their Easter basket.

I gave this book to my son, Matthew, a few years ago. A typical Shel Silverstein book, it's full of fun rhymes and black and white sketches.

There are cute characters, too: Millie Woose, Snerry Jake, Toe Jurtle, Wormy Squirm, Goctor Doose, Bumping Jean, and Skertie Gunk.

This book was completed prior to Shel Silverstein's death in 1999 - it was a work in progress for over twenty years. It was printed in 2005.

Here's a quote from the pirst fage:

Way down in the green woods
Where the animals all play,
They do things and they say things
In a different sort of way -
Instead of sayin' "purple hat",
They all say "hurple pat".
Instead of sayin' "feed the cat",
They just say "ceed the fat".
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.

This is such a fun book to read out loud to your kids - you'll all laugh so hard, that you'll snort. I promise! Run right out and buy it NOW!

Ploppy Sig, Gillip Phiraffe, Rirty Dat, Calley At and Kittle Litten, Flutterby, Batty Meaver, and Franny Fog will all thank you. ;-)
