Runny Babbit, the lovable star of Shel Silverstein’s New York Times bestselling poetry book, is back in this instant New York Times bestseller!

Runny Babbit Returns, a collection of 41 never-before-published poems and drawings, features Runny and other woodland characters who speak a topsy-turvy language all their own.

This carefully compiled work from the Silverstein archives is filled with spoonerism poems that are both playful and poignant. With tongue-twisting word play and uproarious characters, the endearingly befuddled Runny Babbit and his friends embody Shel Silverstein’s singular style, the one we all know and love.

Fans of all ages won’t want to miss their chance to follow their favorite Runny in this New York Times bestseller of laugh-out-loud adventures!

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.”…

Return to the topsy-turvy world of Runny Babbit and friends in another billy sook by the celebrated creator of The Giving Tree, Where the Sidewalk Ends, A Light in the Attic, Runny Babbit, and many more.
