Runny Babbit Returns: Another Billy Sook Reviews

  • Leslie

    I love Shel! Don't concentrate too hard on the mixed up words. Lol.

  • Kate

    The usual Silverstein magic! Perfect for reading aloud to torable adots or your friends. ;)

    You have to stay sharp to be able to read the little twists of words and not lose what it's saying. It's a fun little book, much like the first Runny Babbit. These are poems previously unpublished by Shel and they have made a new volume. They are funny and there were quite a few laughs to be had from the funny sounding words. It's a tongue twister as well to say them out loud when I'm not used to some of these words on my tongue. Runny Babbit is classic Shel.

  • Earl

    It's always nice to have more Shel Silverstein. These were discovered unpublished poems. Maybe because I read this quickly, I didn't like it as much as I remembered liking the first book which at least had a sort of consistent logic to it which this one lacked. Still, it'll be a great addition to any Shel Silverstein library.

    Read this book out loud. That's surely the best way to enjoy it. Shel Silverstein always manages to take the world, and language, the reader knows and flip it in such a way so that it becomes new. These stories are sweet, but so many of them are recognizable. They're people I've met and loved.

    Shel Silverstein never disappoints, and this book is, above all things, just fun to read.

    We figured by the way the

    book had ended that there might be a sequel...

    ...and the Silverstein Archives saved the better for last. It's a tongue-twisting treat (but ice-cream nightmare!) for all ages, as Runny progresses from tart-pime job to a jetter bob; gets married; has his bappiest hirthday; and plans a reenie woast (with a dire-breathin' fragon to fart the stire).

    The rhymes in this collection are smoother — and more meaningful, like in "Runny Needs a Change," "Runny Kisits the Ving," and "Randpa Speaks."

    "Runny's Dad Bay" will particularly appeal to schoolchildren, and "The Gleeping Siant" to adults. (My favorite is "Runny's Irty Dears.")

    It's perfect for the fall season, with three Halloween poems! 🎃

    It was a bit of a brain workout! Rilly Sabbit...

    I love Shel Silverstein books! What made me laugh the most was “fart a stire.” Fun reading these to my kids.

  • Kelly

    Another good Silverstein book, published posthumously. Although I liked the original Runny Babbit book better, this one was very cute. The poems were shorter.

  • Susan

    The second book in this series by Shel Silverstein. It is great for tongue twisting and making you have to think in order to read the words. Excellent illustrations as well. Make sure you read this "billy sook!"
