Book Review


Bink and Gollie are two inseparable, roller-skating, adventure-taking friends; but they are also both very different. In this charming beginner’s chapter book, DiCamillo and McGhee tell three stories of Bink and Gollie and how they compromise so that they are both happy. Flamboyant socks, far-away adventures in the Andes, and a new fishy friend are the center of the three separate chapters. In the end Bink and Gollie, despite their differences, realize that their friendship is really something special for the both of them.
