I read BINK & GOLLIE and fell in love with the characters. Two best friends, who are opposites in looks and personality, make these stories work! This series is a wonderful easy reader for those kids just venturing into chapter books on their own. There are three short stories in this book -- Don't You Need a New Pair of Socks?; P.S. I'll Be Back Soon; and Give a Fish a Home. Give a Fish a Home is my favorite, and I love that Bink chooses the most "unremarkable" fish to give a home. True friendship will overcome all obstacles and be there for you no matter what. What an awesome message! ( )

Definitely deserving of its awards. Their personalities are unique, but suited for each other, and the illustrations are excellent - I love the humorous little details thrown into many of the pages. ( )

This reminded me a lot of Calvin and Hobbes. The artwork is really similar. This is a great first chapter book. There aren't too many words, but it is still challenging. The relationship that the girls have is relatable to young readers. There is humor as well teachings about how friendship should work. I could see this being a hit with many young kids.

Meet Bink and Gollie, marvelous companions who can always agree to put on the roller skates. In other matters, however (such as wich socks to wear, the buying of goldfish, or venturing to the Andes Mountais), compomise is required. But even if one sees a tree houseas halfway up and the other as halfway up and the ortheras halfway up and the others a halfway down, these girls are always the best of friends.
Get ready for a laugh-out-loud bonanza by Newbery Medalist Kate DiCamilo and The New York Times best-selling writer Alison Mcghee, illustrated by award-winning artist and animator Tony Fucile. ( )

Bink and Gollie are great friends who share many adventures together. They don't always agree on everything though. From roller skating through the neighbor to and adventure in the Andes Mountains, they have to find ways to make compromises with one another.

Book description
Winner of the 2011 Theodor Seuss Geisel Award!

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.

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.
