Was he told that Bink was a creature of peanut butter and to add that element in when appropriate while Gollie belonged squarely on the pancake side of things?

The illustrations are absolutely wonderful and help to keep the emphasis squarely on the two aand. They are quite different but enjoy being together.

The first time I read it, I thought the girls were sisters.

Bink & Gollie Book Review

Also, being friends with someone very different from you can make you look at the world from a whole new perspective. Sep 06, Betsy rated it it was amazing.

And on top of all that he includes little things you might not notice except on a fourth or fifth read. They can always agree to go roller skating or eat pancakes, but they must find their way through a maze of compromise on all other matters; and they do so quite entertainingly.


The sock makes an appearance in all three chapters. The different nuances of color with the grey scale was refreshingly simplistic and pleasant. One thing Bink and Gollie will never need to argue about is whether to have peanut butter sandwiches or pancakes: Meet Bink and Gollie, two precocious little girls–one tiny, one tall, and both utterly irrepressible. A lot or a little?

One is left wondering to what extent Mr. Bink seems like the younger of the two, and Gollie older and more mature — but both girls have lessons to learn about compromise, personal space, and dealing with jealous feelings.

It takes noticing that skirt to realize that Bink is a girl at all, sometimes. We really enjoyed this one. I think this is between children’s books and middle grade. View all 8 comments. Mar 02, Clara rated it really liked it Shelves: Refresh and try again.

Bink and Gollie

However, as I mentioned before, it has outsized words in its sentences and comes in at a whopping 96 pages.

That said, there are very big pictures in this book, and hardly nad than a couple sentences per page.

The housing is both not important, and at the same time, extremely interesting. Kudos to McGhee and DiCamillo bin managing to write adorable stories that are never saccharine or grating. Everything with the fish was adorable too.

September 7, at 1: Open Preview See a Problem? Inspirational story about friendship and eco-action. I was searching my library’s e-book selections for more books by Kate DiCamillo because I’ve found her to be a reliably good author when I want a children’s book that’s written aand and isn’t condescending.


Bink is a tiny, loud, sloppy bundle of energy.

Review of the Day: Bink and Gollie by Kate DiCamillo and Alison McGhee

A picture book, it is not. Some folks I know have also mistaken binnk book for a graphic novel, and I think I know why this is. Mar 24, Jodie Greene rated it really liked it Shelves: The chapter that you see here has been abridged.

I really cannot express how much I enjoyed this book.

Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Other books in the series. I liked the adventures that these two friends went on and I liked seeing the story unfold. She reads with verve and great humor, she’s funny and charming with the kids who ask questions, and is, in every way delightful.

Gollle implore you, do not knock. There are three stories in this book and they are all wonderful, however, I think the last story, Give a Fish a Home, is my absolute favorite.
