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. This edition comes with a CD featuring 12 delightful readings from the book.

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,"

Just like mim and he.

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

Our kids just loved the letter reversal word play and have been playing with letter reversal ever since. They especially loved the notes Runny Babbit's mother posted in his room - we read the notes and they took turns figuring out what they meant.

"Runny Babbit lives in a town where you switch the first letters backwards because of this, it was hard to understand but it was still good." Review submitted by Emma Ihly for the Minecraft Book Review Raffle.

This book was quite funny, but cute at the same time.
