I liked the book Runny Babbit. It was very funny because the author made up a language called Runny Language. If the words were high five he would write it as figh hive. It was fun to figure out the words and funny that you could understand the poem even if the words were spelled different.

I bought this book for my son when he was a toddler, and now as 9 year old, he still loves to read thru "Runny Babbit" and contemplate the brilliant play on words and turn of phrases. It stimulates imagination and wit for adults as well. I now love to give this book as a present to others with young ones.

I bought this book for my daughter this Christmas. We absolutely love it. We read the stories over & over. The funny thing is, no matter how many times you read it, you'll get tongue-tied. My daughter says she will reward me if I can read it with out making a mistake, it never works.

This book is as much fun to read as it is to listen to! Just make sure you read it to yourself (well!) before reading to your students, or you'll never finish it for all the laughing! Really puts a smile on faces, young and old!

Silliness, irreverence, truths, groaners, wricky tord play . . .how can anyone of any age resist Shel Silverstein? My kids and I are sooo glad that all these funny gems were gathered together for us to enjoy. What a treat to get more Shel all these years after his death.

My seven-year old loves this book! It has the appeal of total silliness plus the challenge of trying to figure out the correct words. I highly recommend this book.

Very hard to understand. LOL. I guess that's the point?? Anyway, It's just a bunch of poems turned into a story.

My children loved Shel Silverstein's works and they were true incentives for reading. I am now sending them to Australia to my god-daughter's young children and so history repeats itself.

A book like Runny Babbit makes the young reader's brain work to figure out the real meaning in each line. It's lots of fun to read and makes everyone smile inside no matter what your age. Shel Silverstein's books are all great!

To read this book you have to understand the language of Shel Silverstein even though he is not alive to explain it sadly. You can easily get your tongue knotted if you read this book so BEWARE OF THE SCARE!!!
