One slipper was nowhere to be found; the other had been laid hold of by an urchin, and off he ran with it One slipper was nowhere to be found; the other had been laid hold of by an urchin, and he ran off with it I wonder if there is a difference between "off he ran with it" and "he ran off with it".

They are both grammatically correct and have the same meaning. The first is only more poetic, more pleasing to the ear - and so you'll find it more in literature. Thanks for asking!
