In a genius collaboration, acclaimed authors Kate DiCamillo and Alison McGhee - energized by the art of Tony Fucile - introduce two outrageously funny little girls! Meet Bink and Gollie: two precocious little girls - one tiny, one tall, and both irrepressibly funny. Setting out from their super-deluxe tree house and powered by plenty of peanut butter (for Bink) and pancakes (for Gollie), they share three comical adventures involving painfully bright socks, an impromptu trek to the Andes, and a most unlikely marvellous companion. No matter where their roller-skates take them, at the end of the day they will always be the very best of friends! This is the first volume in an illustrated best-friend adventure trilogy for the early reader set, featuring the antics of two very different, but truly hilarious, girls! It is full of visual and textual humor and the perfect book for anyone with a good friend, a love of pancakes, peanut butter, tree houses, and outrageous socks!

Publishers Weekly, 2010-08-09 Think Pippi Longstocking meets The Big Bang Theory, and you'll have a good idea of the mood and quirky heroines of this first entry in what promises to be a wholly original chapter book series. Gollie is reed thin, geeky, and archly judgmental; Bink is petite and down to earth. Like all best friends, they know each other too well and can't live without one another, and in three short adventures, they squabble about novelty socks ("The problem with Gollie," Bink observes, "is that it's either Gollie's way or the highway. My socks and I have chosen the highway"), personal boundaries, and pets ("I must inform you that you are giving a home to a truly unremarkable fish," says Gollie). The plots serve mostly as a framework for DiCamillo and McGhee's sharp, distinctly ungirly dialogue that makes every page feel like a breath of fresh air. And true to his background as an animator for Pixar and Disney, Fucile makes his inklike digital illustrations crackle with energy and sly humor-it's not surprising that the man who helped create The Incredibles' Edna Mode has made these two prickly personalities irresistible.
