A World Book Day 'Recommended Read' for 2011
With deliciously spare text and delightful cartoons, the way friends Bink and Gollie, two very different girls both with very strong views(!), manage to be supportive of each other and also to give each other space to do their own thing is wonderfully entertaining. Three hugely entertaining separate stories tell how Bink and Gollie learn to comprise, have adventures and eat a lot of pancakes!
Meet Bink and Gollie: two precocious little girls - one tiny, one tall, and both irrepressibly funny. Setting out from their shared super-deluxe tree house and powered by plenty of peanut butter (for Bink) and pancakes (for Gollie), they share three comical adventures involving outrageously 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.
