Book Review


Runny Babbit and his friends Toe Jurtle, Skertie Gunk, Rirty Dat, Dungry Hog, and Snerry Jake have a unique way of speaking where they switch beginning letter sounds around. Shel Silverstien tells their stories in this unique way, including the time Runny Babbit snoes gorkeling or the time he goes to the founty cair. Runny and his friends have all sorts of stories to share and Silverstien does a wonderful job of telling them exactly how the characters would.
