Bink & Gollie by Kate DiCamillo and Alison McGhee, illustrated by Tony Fucile
Bink and Gollie are best friends, but two very different personalities! Both love fun and through three short stories and illustrations we get a glimpse of life with this pair.
What I Thought:
This is a keeper! What a fun book. It's a collection of three short cohesive stories that are simply wonderful and Fucile's illustrations take them to the next level! He did an exemplary job portraying Bink and Gollie's different personalities in the perfect way.
My favorite story was the second one where Gollie went on an adventure to the Andes mountains...through a book! When she reached the top, Bink joined her for a sandwich snack.
I really hope that we see more of Bink and Gollie in the near future.
Very highly recommended...I promise you will love it!
(Edited to add...) This book is the 2011 Geisert Medal Award winner.
While I link each book to Amazon, I receive no funds from them for this action. I simply do this as a service in case anyone would like to read further reviews (professional or otherwise) for more information. Thank You!
