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.
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!
Dennis Locorriere is the former lead singer of the pop band Doctor Hook and the Medicine Show. His own shows have always featured Shel Silverstein's songs and he was Shel's choice to perform "The Devil and Billy Markham" at the Lincoln Center in 1989.
