Bink & Gollie by Kate DiCamillo & Alison McGhee

Bink and Gollie...two friends, three adventures.

What I thought: I loved it! I can see why it won the Geisel Award this year. I like that both the girl express themselves uniquely. Their choice of words is great. My favorite words are baffled and implore. Bink & Gollie will make a great read aloud. The illustrations are great. I've liked Fucile's style ever since I read Let's Do Nothing. My favorite illustrations are Bink & Gollie eating pancakes after the sock incident and Bink & Gollie skating on the pond. Might I hope that Bink & Gollie's adventures will continue?
