RUNNY BABBIT is
a previously unpublished collection of Pig Latin verses - meet Wormy
Squirm, Goctor Doose, Snerry Jake and their friends the Funny Bamily.
Hilarious and acutely observed animal characters from Shel
Silverstein, one of America's best loved poets - think Spike Milligan
meets Edward Lear: this
is nonsense poetry that makes perfect sense.
Also available from
Marion Boyars Publishers: A
Light in the Attic and Where
the Sidewalk Ends

'Runny Babbit by Shel Silverstein is the antidote to the are-we-nearly-there?
car journeys and airport purgatory. Compiled over 20 years and finished
just before Silverstein died, these wonderfully playful rhymes
the reader in to Silversteins comic embrace and demand endless
re-readings. Will enthuse and confuse four- to ten-year-olds
and eventually drive their parents minking blad.' Sunday Telegraph
imagination and sense of humour accompanied by his delightful line drawings
ensure that this collection will become a classic.' ****
