Bink & Golly Two for One
by Kate DiCamillo and Alison McGhee, illustrated by Tony Fucile
Candlewick, May 2012
Bink and Gollie are back in their second book and I can only hope there are more to follow. This time the duo are headed to the state fair where Bink tries her arm at Whack a duck, Gollie attempts to take part in a talent show, and they both learn what lies in their future. Tony Fucile's animation background is eveident in every illustration. Each character springs from the page, spry ink lines capturing life, energy, and motion. With a heart-warming message and chapters that are milk-out-the-nose funny, Bink and Golly Two for One is a stellar sequel that stands on its own.
