Bink and Gollie

Readers eagerly follow Bink and Gollie on their whimsical adventures. These spunky gals turn even the most mundane tasks, such as sock shopping, into amusing experiences.

Don’t be fooled-- although it may appear short, Bink and Gollie’s banter keeps even the advanced reader engaged and entertained. Tony Fucile’s illustrations add to the whimsy of the story--the final illustration of Fred, the fish, will cause much laughter. Your students, children, grandchildren, niece, mail carrier, and, most importantly, YOU, need this book. (Travis and I named Bink and Gollie the #1 book of 2010.)

  1. Bink and Gollie is a wonderful book! It was fun watching it get passed from student to student until nearly the entire class read it. Thank you for a wonderful website with so many outstanding resources.
