Bink and Gollie: Two for One

By Kate DiCamillo, Alison McGhee
Illustrated by Tony Fucile

If you’re looking for two marvellous companions, who will make you hug the page with delight, look no further than Bink and Gollie!

The state fair is in town, and for Bink and Gollie – utter opposites and über best friends – three comical adventures await! Bink attacks the Whack-a-Duck with an unswerving winning attitude – the world’s largest doughnut is up for grabs! And, with a quiet determination, Gollie storms the stage at the talent show... BUT a lousy shot and a case of stage fright spoil each girl's chances! Undeterred, they use their grey matter and turn it all around! In the final story, Bink and Gollie make a date with destiny: Madame Prunely, fortune teller spectacular! She looks into her crystal ball and tells them everything they could ever need to know ... they'll always be together. Without question.
