Runny Babbit Returns: Another Billy Sook

(3) K-3 This follow-up to Silverstein's posthumously published Runny Babbit is very much a continuation of its predecessor. Spoonerisms (with the first letters or sounds of words swapped, as in "nuttered boodles") make each of the forty-four poems a puzzle for kids to untangle; the verses are accompanied by characteristically entertaining line drawings of Runny and his many friends. Pure fun.
