    good sense of humor while teaching friendship and compromise

    This is an excellent new book by Kate DiCamillo A completely new book with new characters. I love the stories and the very smart writing! It is a great story of two very different girls who are friends that are very different personalities and get along very well. Use of great words. If you are looking for something different look at this!

    Wonderful friendship tale!

    I've always been a fan of Kate DiCamillo's work, and I was not disappointed by this new book with Alison McGhee. The two main charachters -- Bink & Gollie -- are funny and entertaining. My boys laughed at several of the situations depicted and absolutely loved the fish! I highly recommend this book as it's fun to read to kids, as well as for kids to read on their own.

    Lovable characters

    One of my 3 year old's favorite books. Told in short "chapters", this book is longer than most young children's books (recommended age is 6-8), but endearing enough to keep my little girl's attention throughout. And then she asks for more.

    Bink & Gollie is so fun for beginning readers!

    My daughter found BiNK & gollie books at her school library and loved the humor and the illustrations, as well as the fact that the reading level was just right for her! She's a first grader and enjoys reading, especially funny books. Loved it.

    This story, written like three smaller stories, is about two f



    This story, written like three smaller stories, is about two friends whose imagination allows them to enjoy their friendship and go on mini adventures together. The two are quite hilarious and caring at the same time.

    Bink, the younger of the two friends is full of wild notions and demands Gollie’s attention. Her energy is contagious throughout the pages. Even her appearance was energizing. Her hair stands in every direction and her mismatched clothes and socks set her as the comical character. Bink is the initiator, she always devising new plans and creates excitement in the most mundane occurrences such as buying a pair of socks.

    Gollie, on the other hand, is much more reserved. She is the mature one of the pair and appears more stable than Bink; She even looks after Bink in an older-sister sort of way. They make a great pair. Gollie is taller than Bink, has straight brown hair that is topped off cleanly with a bow. Her appearance, like Bink, suggests the type of character she is. Each girl has a real character flaw; Gollie is a tad controlling while Bink is stubborn. I was glad to see these characters in a children’s story because they were people I already knew and I’m sure children could relate to these qualities. I’ve worked in daycare, and I know children do NOT always get along.

    As for the plot, it was a laugh fest. From buying outrageous socks, climbing the Andes Mountains, and ice-skating with a goldfish, the two friends are impossibly hilarious. What I love about this story is that Bink and Gollie’s friendship isn’t just a wacky adventure all the time. They have their disagreements and real struggles.

    Spunky, memorable, I wish there were more!

    I never write reviews, but this was such a hit that I felt compelled. I bought this for my 2.5 year old daughter, and she loved the stories. She could really get into the differences between the two characters, and she loved learning new words, like BONANZA! These are as much fun for me to read as for her to hear. I want more installments, please!!!
