Newbery winning author Kate DiCamillo pairs up Alison McGhee to create an engaging story about two precocious young girls, Bink and Gollie. One is tiny. One is tall. Gollie loves pancakes. Bink loves peanut butter. Both are beyond imagination. The two extraordinary girls share three humorous adventures involving an outrageous pair of socks, a trip to the Andes and the somewhat intrusive addition of a most unlikely new companion. Despite not always agreeing on everything, at the end of the day they are always best friends. This is a wonderful tale of friendship brought to life by the delightful illustrations of Tony Fucile. I hope we see more of Bink and Gollie.
