Free read Bink Gollie è PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Winner of the 2011 Theodor Seuss Geisel AwardIn a brilliant collaboration best selling authors Kate DiCamillo and Alison McGhee along with acclaimed illustrator Tony Fucile introduce an outrageously funny pair of friendsMeet Bink and Gollie two precocious little girls one tiny one tall and both utterly irrepressibl. I eye Bink and Gollie across the room with a slow reptilian stare I yell at it I refuse to be charmed by you I throw a shoe Bink and Gollie to its credit does not allow itself to be sucked into my childish behavior I edge a little closer I cry I know your pictures are amazing and your writing manages to be louacious without being precious but I am not fooled I throw my other shoe which unfortunately means that I am now out of shoes Bink and Gollie is now looking at me with a mixture of amusement and pity I fall to my knees and crawl forward When I m close enough I whisper I lied You re amazing You re everything a person would want in a children s book You re the best thing I ve ever seen I succumb Bink and Gollie strokes my hair as I cry uncontrollably but it knows I am telling the truth It really is the best thing ever And what s it s a book like nothing else you ve ever seen Nothing Ever Seen Trust me on this one I see a lot of booksPut together two Minnesotans and one animator and what do you get Bink and Gollie of course Bink is a diminutive pixie all wild blond hair and a penchant for falling madly in love with things Gollie in contrast is a staid and measured companion unwilling to be pulled into Bink s obsessions if she can possibly help it The two are best friends and in this book we are treated to three of their adventures In the first Bink falls head over heels for a pair of brightly colored socks that irk Gollie to the extreme A compromise must be reached In the second tale Gollie is determined to scale the heights of the Andes Mountains in her living room but finds it difficult to do so when Bink keeps knocking on her front door In the third Bink becomes enad of a goldfish Gollie cannot see its appeal but when a terrible accident occurs she s the one who knows exactly what to do If you seek marvelous companions look no further than the tales you ll find hereThe great pairings of children s literature involve friends with differences Danny and his dinosaur Houndsley and Catina Elephant and Piggie George and Martha But the greatest of all these and the standard bearers if you will are undoubtedly Frog and Toad There s something about their particular combination of exasperation and affection that rings true Until now I ve seen few few very few characters that tap into that same feeling and it is interesting to me that Bink Gollie would be one of the most successful On the surface there are some distinct differences from Lobel s classic work While he never included a word difficult to read than button in his books DiCamillo and McGhee revel in delicious words like bonanza outrageous implore ventured and marvelous but to name a few That said it s all about tone The back and forth between Bink and Gollie rings so true that you are given the immediate impression that not only are these two girls real people but that they have been friends for years and know one another well You get that feeling from Frog and Toad too you know With a minimum of words you re convinced of their world from page one onward No mean featAs for the girls themselves I don t think I ve ever really seen characters like this before Bink is short blond and sports a permanently pleated skirt It takes noticing that skirt to realize that Bink is a girl at all sometimes She sports a Struwwelpeter worthy head of hair that could easily be ascribed to either gender Gollie in contrast appears to be older She s tall thin oft seen wearing knee length pants with black tights underneath explaining in some ways her visceral objection to Bink s colorful footwear If there is an age difference between them Gollie is too good natured to let it get in the way of their friendship True she often tries to impose her opinions on Bink your socks are too bright your fish is not marvelous etc but this usually meets with the brick wall of Bink s obsessions Bink loves Gollie but is perfectly aware that Gollie s opinion is not the be all and end all of creation itself Maybe what I love most about them is that these girls are allowed to do things that traditionally boys do in children s literature Gollie is inclined to pretend that she is explorer scaling the icy heights of the Andes Mountains Both love roller skating and ice skating for fun They re active gals And sure they engage in traditional girly things like cooking and gardening but I like that they re given options outside of the usual let s play princess mindset If Bink wears shoes she wears sneakers There s something to be said for thatThe universe Bink and Gollie occupy could only exist in children s literature Not since the days of Winnie the Pooh have characters lived in such individual and striking homes Bink and Gollie partake of that childhood fantasy of a world without adults At the foot of a large tree is Bink s home all cozy and warm and tended More cottage than house really On the top of the tree is Gollie s ultra mod swinging pad outfitted inside with sleek furniture and nonrepresentational art And don t think to yourself that these tales take place while the grown ups are away either You ll notice in the scene where Bink is digging carrots out of her garden that everything about her house is Bink sized Everything from the height of the windows to the size of the garbage can is made for Bink Bink Bink You never really uestion this world either Heck I had to read the book four or five times before I even noticed it at all Somehow it makes perfect sense in context An parent s presence would ruin the entire effect Like a whole host of new illustrators these days we owe the existence of the illustrator one Mr Fucile to his work on films as an animator His first title for kids was the rather nice Let s Do Nothing which was a picture book about two boys attempting the impossible It was a fine debut but I little suspected the man capable of the visual splendor that is Bink and Gollie Because you see while madams DiCamillo and McGhee give these girls their very particular very distinctive voices it is Mr Fucile who makes you fall in love with them Our very first view of Bink aside from the cover and chapter page is of her sitting in a chair cross legged cordless phone in one hand spoonful of peanut butter in the other jar nestled nicely between her sneaker footed legs Gollie in contrast is seen all akimbo legs phone gripped in one hand and a second holding a book clawlike above her head By the time you read the lines Greetings Bink I long for speed it s done You re charmed It is clear from here on in that you are nestled suarely in the palm of Mr Fucile s hand He knows when to make Bink just a nose above a desk asking for information Or how exactly to show Gollie spilling pancake batter all over her griddle And the emotional beats resonate When Bink accuses Gollie of being jealous of her fish Fred you see Gollie suddenly vulnerable Her hands held before her her eyes staring off into space Her right eyebrow hints at the truth behind Bink s statement and certainly the reader is left with little doubt It s amazing With just the tiniest strokes of his pen Fucile turns a potentially tragic scene into a heroic one and then immediately into one of great poignancy Fair play to the manNote too the use of color Much of this book is left in black and white but Fucile knows precisely when these layouts would best be served by a dash of hue here and there Though the seasons change between each chapter somehow you never feel that the colorless summer is the same as the colorless fall It s all in the shading Some folks I know have also mistaken this book for a graphic novel and I think I know why this is It s not because there are any speech balloons to be seen but rather because Fucile is adept at breaking up his space One moment you re looking at a two page spread of a darkened theater watching a film and the next the action has been split into three long panels showing exactly how Bink trips and falls over a rock in the road We re not used to our children s books working the layouts like this Clearly Fucile s past experience with storyboards is coming in handy these daysOne is left wondering to what extent Mr Fucile came up with the book s details and to what extent he created them out of his own brain Was he told to give the Eccles Empire of Enchantment that particular air of treasure hunting mixed with a tinge of despair Was he told that Bink was a creature of peanut butter and to add that element in when appropriate while Gollie belonged suarely on the pancake side of things Was he instructed that rather than cell phones Bink and Gollie use white cordless landlines Was he asked to make Bink s scarf at the end of the book the second bright sock purchased at the beginning of the book And on top of all that he includes little things you might not notice except on a fourth or fifth read When Gollie decides to give Bink half her pancakes notice that she gave Bink the much taller stack And when a besotted Bink agrees to hang out with Gollie she is holding her phone out so that Fred the fish can hear the news as wellNow comes the difficult part for the children s librarian that reads this book Mainly where the heckedy heck do you put it in your children s room It has three distinct chapters and comes in at 6 38 X 9 12 A picture book it is not However as I mentioned before it has outsized words in its sentences and comes in at a whopping 96 pages Easy reader it is not That said there are very big pictures in this book and hardly than a couple sentences per page So chapter book it is not So where do you put it My suggestion is that you create a Bink and Gollie section in your library Clear a whole shelf off in your room and display your copies of this book proudly And then in the future when there are many many Bink and Gollie adventures to be added as there had better be or you will hear me shrieking loudly in the streets outside of the Candlewick publishing offices you can just buy enough copies to fill the shelf up Slap your hands together problem solved I keep very few of the books that I m sent by publishers for review In 2010 alone I think I ve kept only the books signed to me alongside Meanwhile and A Sick Day for Amos McGee I can now add Bink and Gollie to that list I don t know where in the library you d ever put it but put it in your library both public and personal you must There s something about this book that utterly defies any and all expectations You d have to have a heart of stone not to be hypnotized by the sheer charm of these stories All we can do now is own it give it to all the small children we know and clamor to the creators like little Oliver Twist parrots Please m ams and sirs we d like some For

Free read Bink Gollie è PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free E 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 marvelous companion No matter where their roller skates take them at the end. Two friends with very different personalities must reach an accommodation with one another in the three stories found in this entertaining beginning chapter book from co authors Kate DiCamillo and Alison McGhee Extroverted Bink goes right for the colorful socks in the first selection while reserved Gollie is horrified by her choice Both must learn to compromise after Gollie attempts to use their pancake breakfast as a means of separating Bink from her new footwear In the second selection Gollie embarks on a voyage of the imagination exploring the Andes Mountains all whilst in her own home while an impatient Bink can t uite grasp that her friend doesn t wish to be interrupted In the third and final story Bink s new goldfish leads to tension until she Bink realizes what is causing Gollie s resentmentI greatly enjoyed Bink and Gollie which with its gentle tales of two friends who despite their differences are loving companions to one another reminded me of Arnold Lobel s classic Frog and Toad books That is high praise I appreciated the way in which the two of them negotiate their differences and eventually reach a compromise as it is clear that there is true affection behind their disagreements The conclusion of the book in which Bink assures Gollie that she and not the goldfish is the most marvelous companion of all provided a satisfactorily heartwarming end The artwork created digitally by Tony Fucile adds to the fun perfectly capturing the differing personalities of the two friends and the drama of their various confrontations Recommended to anyone looking for simple chapter books featuring engaging characters
