Taken in dall smoses, this self-proclaimed"billy sook"is really a fun-filled new (posthumously published) providing from children's poet Shel Silverstein, creator of Where the Sidewalk Ends, A Light in the Attic, and other favorites."(Here, in one particular of many winningly basic line drawings, R. B. sits knitting one very lengthy sleeve, which is labeled as such. In this madcap world, pea soup is sea poup, Capture the Flag is Fapture the Clag, and snow boots are bow snoots. Completed prior for the poet's death in 1999, Runny Babbit was a perform in progress for more than 20 years, and is populated by the likes of Runny Babbit, Toe Jurtle, Ploppy Sig, Polly Dorkupine, and Pilly Belican (who owns the Sharber Bop) , all denizens with the green woods where letter-flipping runs rampant. Each poem incorporates the same form of switcheroo wordplay found in"Runny's Hew Nobby:"Runny Babbit knearned to lit,/ And produced a swat and heater,/ And now he sadly will admit/ He bight have done it metter.) Children who have some fluency in reading will enjoy this bonsensical nook probably the most. (Ages 7 to 12) --Karin Snelson
