Runny Babbit

by Shel Silverstein


Runny Babbit: A Billy Sook is a children's book by Shel Silverstein. A work in progress for the better part of 20 years, the book was published posthumously in 2005. The book is largely composed of spoonerisms in rhyming verse.
Other than speaking only in spoonerisms, Runny is a normal child. He has many friends, and two loving parents, his " Dummy and mad," who often remind him to "Shake a tower," "Dash the wishes," "Tush your breeth," "Rean your cloom,"and other chores.
