I LOVED this! My one complaint would be that it is TOO short! Instead of three chapters about Bink and Gollie, I would love to read thirty chapters! While reading this, I made a list of things I love about this book:

* I love BOTH Bink and Gollie.

* LOVE Bink's hair!

* LOVE their "compromise bonanza!" This is something all friends need to learn about.

* LOVE the use of color AND gray-scale. Any important focal point is in color. Bink and Gollie are ALWAYS in color.

* Gollie used Bink's sock as her flag for the top of the Andes!

* LOVE the fish chapter (of course!)

* LOVE Bink's choice of a goldfish! What a marvelous companion - and so cute!

* Was Bink using the sock from chapter one as a scarf while ice skating? Too fun! The sock makes an appearance in all three chapters.

Christine Turner Luann, I think that you will really like this one.

Luann Thanks! I'll have to bump it up in priority.


Luann Well, it took nearly a year but I finally got around to reading this. And I LOVED it! Thanks, Christine. I can't wait to see which students at my school will also read it and love it.


Christine Turner I wish that it was longer too.


Lisa Vegan I loved it too. There are sequels, right? I haven't gotten to any of them yet.


Lisa Vegan I think the length is probably good for very early, young readers.


Christine Turner Book 2 - Two for one (Jun 2012)
Book 3 - Best friends forever (Apr 2013)
