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 These are poems previously unpublished by Shel and they have made a new volume.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...

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. She...

I enjoyed this quite a bit, it was fun to read aloud. I will add that I have never read Shel Silverstein's poetry books before, so I cannot compare this to previous books. I'm never quite sure how to discuss poetry, especially children's poetry. My favorite poem was the one with Doby Mick the wha...

We figured by the way the previous 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...

This poetry book, good for any grade honestly, has always been one of my favorites. I love the fun way Shel Silverstein uses his words and how ones mind can come up with the idea to change letters in words to create fun and laughable poetry is beyond me. I love that each poem is different and yet...

I love all things Shel Silverstein and loved the first Runny Babbit book, and this was great, too! I love books are able to be published from the author's archives. The book is short, but the poems take awhile to read to try to figure out the switches in words. They're also better read than liste...

Both Runny Babbit and this, its sequel, were published posthumously, and you can tell that most of the poems in this ~billy sook~ were definitely on the B-list. That said, it's still a fun read, I got some giggles, and the picture of the naked (shell-less) turtle dancing away is worth the price o...

Another wonderful collection of silly tongue-twisting, mind-bending poems by beloved poet Shel Silverstein. I loved how my mind wanted to read what it thought was on the page rather than what was truly written. This, along with the first Runny Babbit collection, are meant to be shared and enjoyed...
