Bink and Gollie (Junior Library Guild Selection (Candlewick Press))

Bink & Gollie - Alison McGhee, Kate DiCamillo, Tony Fucile A fun, chapter book with a contemporary feel. Bink is short and blond and tousle-haired. Gollie is a gangly, pixie-cut brunette and has a way with words. Bink lives at the bottom of a tree in a tiny cottage. Gollie lives in a modern-style treehouse near the top of the tree. Halfway up the tree, there is bench on a branch where they can meet.Authors Kate DiCamillo and Alison McGhee, riff on friendship in three chapter stories. Colorful socks, pancakes, adventurous treks, Fred the goldfish and roller-skating, bring a fresh, humorous spin to getting along with your best friend. Slightly over-sized, illustrated in color with drawings by Tony Fucile, Bink & Gollie takes companionship to a zany, new level. All righty, then!
