BINK AND GOLLIE: TWO FOR ONE by Kate DiCamillo and Alison McGhee with illustrations by Tony Fucile. Candlewick Press, 2012.

They are back and better than ever. Bink and Gollie star in a trio of stories set at the fair. As Bink tries to win a prize playing some of the games at the fair (and is squelched at her attempts), Gollie decides to enter into a talent competition. Stage fright hits Gollie like a ton of bricks. Finally, the two have their fortunes told. Throughout the stories, one thing is apparent: despite their differences, Bink and Gollie are the best of friends. Tony Fucile's illustrations are subtle and yet manage to convey much emotion (and some hilarity as well. More, please. <336>
