It is a good book for children to learn friendship. The settings in the book is like in the real word, which makes it become a realistic fiction. it talks about two good friends have adventures in the state fair. The illustrations are real cute and funny. It can be used in social study class and reading class for young kids. ( )

Summary: This is a chapter book about two good friends, Bink and Gollie and their adventure at the state fair. In the first chapter, Bink plays a game called What a Duck to try to win the wold's biggest donut. In the end, Bink is unable to win the big donut so she ends up buying multiple bags of little donuts. In the second chapter, Gollie attended a talent show. However, she was too shy to show her talent in front of all the audience, and then she left the stage. Bink encouraged her to show her talent in front of Bink and the cows, and Gollie did a good job. In the third chapter, Bink and Gollie go see a fortune teller who tells them that they will be friends in the future.
Genre: contemporary realistic fiction. Because the setting is similar to our real life and could real happened in our life.
Age app: 4th grade to middle
Media: watercolor, color pencil ( )

It is a good chapter book for kids to read. It's perfect for the transition between picture books and novels because each page is fully illustrated (like a picture book) with one or two sentences in each page.This time, the two friends find themselves at the fair where games await promising super prizes, a talent show beckons one to stage, and a fortune teller provides the friends with a message they had been carrying with them the whole time. I enjoy the ch2 most, it tells us about two characters are going to the talent show but Gollie is afraid to show her talent in front of the audience. Finally, they made a small state at storage and make their show time together. So warm and cute they are.
The book is full of humors.
To teachers, it is a good book for them to read aloud to children and attract their focus by the humorous of the story.
To children, it is a good chapter book that they can learn something about friendship and have fun with the book. ( )

What a great read. This book is just one long Looney Tunes short. The first chapter is all slapstick which has Gollie repeatedly clobbering a carni. The next chapter is a cute talent show and the third chapter is gypsy based which ties the book together,

Best friends Bink and Gollie, two inseparable companions with very different personalities, return in this second collection of stories devoted to their adventures, following upon the initial Bink & Gollie. In this installment of the series, the friends attend the state fair, where their relative lack of success - Bink doesn't win the biggest donut ever in the whack a duck game, while Gollie doesn't cover herself in glory in the talent show - fades to insignificance after a visit to Madame Prunely the fortune-teller.

Like its predecessor, Bink and Gollie: Two for One was an entertaining tale of two very different girls who somehow manage, despite their very different approaches to life, to complement one another perfectly. I was reminded, in this respect, of Arnold Lobel's classic Frog and Toad stories, which also chronicle the doings of two friends. I've heard it said that Bink represents a young Kate DiCamillo and Gollie a young Alison McGhee, however that may be, their differing perspectives are wonderfully combined in these stories, and their humorous adventures captures in the droll artwork of Tony Fucile. Recommended to anyone who enjoyed the first Bink and Gollie book, or who is looking for humorous stories for beginning chapter-books readers. ( )
