Runny Babbit, the lovable star of Shel Silverstein’s New York Times bestselling poetry book, is back. Runny Babbit Returns, a collection of 41 never-before-published poems and drawings, features Runny and other woodland characters who speak a topsy-turvy language all their own.

This carefully compiled work from the Silverstein archives is filled with spoonerism poems that are both playful and poignant. With tongue-twisting word play and uproarious characters, the endearingly befuddled Runny Babbit and his friends embody Shel Silverstein’s singular style, the one we all know and love. 

Fans of all ages won’t want to miss their chance to follow their favorite Runny in this book of laugh-out-loud adventures!
