From the library
The story: Bink and Gollie are very different. Bink is short and Gollie is tall. Bink likes peanut butter sandwiches while Gollie is fond of making pancakes. Bink loves bright socks and goldfish but Gollie would rather pretend to explore the world. Their love for roller skating and each other is sure to bring them through any challenge.
Mama opines: This book is wonderful. The characters are quirky and the stories are delightful looks at childhood friendship. There are three stories in this collection and they are perfect for young readers who are looking for some longer books.
Thoughts from David: Bink and Gollie is a very good book. I don't think there is a better book. Y'all might know that sometimes stories can be a little too creative. That doesn't happen very often, though. If you have read the book before, you'd know that it is three stories in one. But if you haven't, that's just a telling. Well, as you might know, sometimes I guess it just curves off. Well, that's all for now! Bye!
