Bink & Gollie: Two for One


  • Short, compact sentences make this book an ideal selection for beginning readers… Fucile employs an economical use of sketchy lines and splashes of color to capture facial expressions and emotions with spot-on accuracy. His artwork goes a long way in making this title the funny, touching book that it is. It would be no surprise if Bink and Gollie were to join the likes of Elephant and Piggie and Frog and Toad in the ranks of favorite friend duos.
    –The Bulletin of the Center for Children

    • Another welcome sequel…illustrated with zany energy. Here the mismatched best friends compete at the state fair to win a large doughnut, “nature’s most perfect food,” and together “travel the darkened path” to a gypsy tent, where a wizened Madame Prunely gives them a lovely glimpse of the future.
      –The Wall Street Journal
  • Fucile’s lively artwork and detailed cartoon-style drawings, in combination with DiCamillo and McGhee’s simple, droll words, are spot-on when it comes to depicting humorous and sympathetic moments, and they excel in highlighting the great joys of best friendship. Kids will be left eagerly anticipating the further adventures of this unlikely and completely charming duo.
