🐇A Kooky Ride, errr— Read!🐇
Reviewed in the United States on December 27, 2019
I have been a Shel Silverstein fan for a very long time. My 6 year old neighbor got a real bunny and I immediately knew what I would get her for Christmas— a billy sook, Runny Babbit! She’s exceptionally bright for her age. Otherwise, this book wouldn’t work. I’d put it at a 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th grade reading/understanding level generally speaking, but it can be adapted to younger ages with assistance in the form of explanations (takes much patience). Of course, serve a glass of wine to a gathering of adults, assign reading parts that require animations, and it’s an instant blast. It’s hard to read, even for an adult. A best test as a brain and tongue teaser/twister. Part of the fun is reading it out loud and watching children figure out the real word/sentence. It’ll crack up anyone. It almost makes you crazy. As always, Silverstein’s illustrations are sensational and hysterical.
