There’s something about this book that utterly defies any and all expectations. You’d have to have a heart of stone not to be hypnotized by the sheer charm of these stories. All we can do now is own it, give it to all the small children we know, and clamor to the creators like little Oliver Twist parrots. Please m’ams and sirs . . . we’d like some more!

Sweet story! This is a book with great illustrations and few words on each page, which makes it really satisfying for kids who are just getting reading down - lots of bang for your buck! Bink and Gollie are sweet characters with some pizazz, imaginations, and a great fondness for each other.

An incredibly funny and enjoyable book, even for older readers (or listeners)! Bink and Gollie, despite their opposing opinions as to socks and speed, manage to work out their differences and remain friends.

Sweet, loopy and fun. No doubt this will find a devoted audience -- but who will that audience be? It will be fun to find out -- I will start recommending and see who it appeals to. I am almost thinking 2nd grade girls who wouldn't normally like an easy reader.

A sweet story about friendship in which opposites attract, where even widely differing opinions on important stuff like stripy socks and goldfish are not enough to keep these two very different girls apart. A great choice for primary-grade readers and fans of Frog and Toad.

bink and gollie have many adventures and one of them was when gollie pretended to be on a journey climbing a mountain and nobody could knock on her door.but bink knocked and gollie let her come in after she was done. by michael

Put together two Minnesotans and one animator and what do you get? Bink and Gollie, of course. Bink is a diminutive pixie, all wild blond hair and a penchant for falling madly in love with things. Gollie, in contrast, is a staid and measured companion, unwilling to be pulled into Bink’s obsessions if she can possibly help it. The two are best friends and in this book we are treated to three of their adventures. In the first, Bink falls head over heels for a pair of brightly colored socks that irk Gollie to the extreme. A compromise must be reached. 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. In the third, Bink becomes enamored of a goldfish. Gollie cannot see its appeal, but when a terrible accident occurs she’s the one who knows exactly what to do. If you seek marvelous companions, look no further than the tales you’ll find here.

Book trailer for Bink & Gollie by Kate DiCamillo & Alison McGhee

Meet Bink and Gollie, two precocious little girls--one tiny, one tall, and both utterly irrepressible. 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 marvelous companion. No matter where their roller skates take them, at the end of the day they will always be the very best of friends. Full of quick-witted repartee, this brainchild of Newbery Medalist Kate DiCamillo and award-winning author Alison McGhee is a hilarious ode to exuberance and camaraderie, imagination and adventure, brought to life through the delightfully kinetic images of Tony Fucile. In a brilliant collaboration, best-selling authors Kate DiCamillo and Alison McGhee, along with acclaimed illustrator Tony Fucile, introduce an outrageously funny pair of friends.
