Bink and Gollie: Best Friends Forever

By Kate DiCamillo, Alison McGhee
Illustrated by Tony Fucile

All righty, then! Celebrate the tall and short of a marvelous friendship with another Bink and Gollie adventure.

Gollie is quite sure she has royal blood in her veins, but can Bink survive her friend’s queenly airs — especially if pancakes are not part of the deal? Bink wonders what it would be like to be as tall as her friend, but how far will she stretch her luck to find out? And when Bink and Gollie long to get their picture into a book of record holders, where will they find the kudos they seek? Slapstick and sweetness, drollery and delight abound in this follow-up to the Geisel Award–winning, New York Times Best Illustrated Children’s Book Bink and Gollie, written by the beloved and best-selling Kate DiCamillo and Alison McGhee and brought to hilarious life by Tony Fucile.

  • Hilarious and sweet third installment from the Theodor Seuss Geisel award-winning pair of best friends - one short, one tall, both bound to be friends forever.
  • Tony Fucile's exuberant illustrations leap off the page, making every one of Bink and Gollie's lively expressions and loveable antics a highly animated visual delight.
  • Bink and Gollie was selected as A New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Children s Book "Oh, happiness! Move over Pippi Longstocking!" - The New York Times Book Review
