The Lovereading4Kids comment
Award-winning authors Kate DiCamillo and Alison McGhee have created a glorious pair of girls - tall, tall Gollie and her very short friend Bink. The two girls are as different in temperament as they are in looks but they remain the very best of friends despite that. Their adventures, whether choosing new socks, finding a new home or buying a new pet – a goldfish! – are full of ups and downs and fuelled by moments of great comedy. Tony Fucile’s illustration gives the stories a wonderful visual depth as well.
Bink and Gollie by Kate DiCamillo, Alison McGhee
In a genius collaboration, acclaimed authors Kate DiCamillo and Alison McGhee - energised by the art of Tony Fucile - introduce two outrageously funny little girls! Meet Bink and Gollie: two precocious little girls - one tiny, one tall, and both irrepressibly funny. Setting out from their super-deluxe tree house and powered by plenty of peanut butter (for Bink) and pancakes (for Gollie), they share three comical adventures involving painfully bright socks, an impromptu trek to the Andes and a most unlikely marvellous companion. No matter where their roller-skates take them, at the end of the day they will always be the very best of friends! This is the first volume in an illustrated best-friend adventure trilogy for the early reader set, featuring the antics of two very different but truly hilarious girls! It is full of visual and textual humor and the perfect book for anyone with a good friend, a love of pancakes, peanut butter, tree houses and outrageous socks!
