Shel Silverstein delighted old and young alike with his stories, music, poetry, and signature illustrations. Now,
6 years after his death, memories of such classics as The Giving Tree, A Light in the Attic, and Where the Sidewalk Ends
are rekindled with the publication of Runny Babbit. Completed before Silverstein's death in 1999, the recent publication
of this fanciful collection of poems about a cute little bunny rabbit caries the author's trademark quirky humor wrapped
up in wordplay poetry that will delight kids as they learn the twists and turns of "Runny Babbit talk." Tongue twisters
galore are handled admirably by narrator Dennis Locorriere. The illustrated book, combined with this audio version, makes
a perfect combination of sight and sound linguistic delight.
