The two are best friends and in this book we are treated to three of their adventures.

The words are chosen sparingly and sublimely and it’s brilliant how well they, coupled with the absolutely marvelous illustrations, convey the tone and characters’ thoughts I loved this book! This would make a fitting gift to give to a friend of any ageespecially if gkllie relationship is ever tumultuous or strained, or simply close. Too easy for advanced readers, but still fun.

Move over Pippi Longstocking! The result is a story that is enjoyable for a much wider goolie range than one might normally find in a children’s book. The story is of two very different best friends and how they compromise while keeping their individuality.


At one point, Gollie acts more like a mother.

Bink and Gollie

Both the story and pictures are so charming and funny, and they really capture the complexity of friendship. Visit my blog at http: About A Fuse 8 Production Features everything from librarian previews of upcoming children’s books to news, reviews, and videos.

The illustration of the movie theater is one of my favorite.

Bink & Gollie (Bink & Gollie, #1) by Kate DiCamillo

Setting out from their super-deluxe tree house and powered by plenty of peanut butter for Bink and pancakes for Golliethey share three comical adventures involving painfully bright socks, an impromptu trek to the Andes, and a most unlikely marvelous companion.

Easy reader it is not. In the second tale Gollie is determined to scale the heights of the Andes Mountains in her living room but finds it difficult to do so when Bink keeps knocking on her front door. Winner of the Theodor Seuss Geisel Award!

He knows when to make Bink just a nose above a desk, asking for information. For this reason, Pixar fans are likely to enjoy the book. I loved this book! The droll Gollie – tall, thin, calm – and the whimsical, mischievous, daring Bink with her spiked, yellow, out-of-control hair.


A kid learning to read could start with this gem. Because, you see, while madams DiCamillo and McGhee give these girls their very particular, very distinctive voices, it is Mr.

Bink & Gollie

I see a lot of books. This is a picture book that tells three adventures about Bink and Gollie.

It offers plenty of opportunity to discuss friendship, jealousy, and even taking care of pets. Mar 24, Jodie Greene rated it really liked it Shelves: Kids will love Bink and warm to Gollie. Golpie our Spring Fiction Sampler Now. I really cannot express how much I enjoyed this book. A cute little book I had to get for one of my college classes.

ahd Easy reader it is not. It was a fine debut, but I little suspected the man capable of the visual splendor that is Bink and Gollie.

Can you think of other books about friends who are opposites? Not since the days of Winnie-the-Pooh have characters lived in such individual and striking homes.
