    I just read Bink and Gollie this was a very funny book and it’s great for people who enjoy laughing. My favorite part of the book was when they fought about rainbow socks. Also when they let their fish go into the pond and when winter came and they were ice skating and the fish was swimming below them while they were skating. I wish this book would never end and look to see if a series come out. I look forward to reading again and again it was a great book and it made me laugh a lot.

    I read Bink and Gollie. It is very funny and very good for 5th graders who like funny books. My favorite part was when they had a fish in the summer they let it go in a pond then six months they went skating at to the same pond and they saw the fish swimming through the ice. I the book so much.My least favorite part was about rainbow socks it wasn’t really interesting. I would definitely recommend this book to a friend .

    I read bink and gollie and it was hilarious it was the best book I have ever read. My favorite part was when bink got a fish and the bowl broke and then they put it in the lake and when it froze hey ice skated over the fish and the fish follow them. I liked the part when bink wanted these CRAZY socks and gollie just gave in because she wasn’t going to stop bugging her till she got them. I also liked the part when gollie went in her room and climbed a mountain and had all of these awesome adventures that aren’t possible but it still made me laugh because bink wanted to play but gollie didn’t. I recommend this book to anyone who loves funny books that you’re non-stop laughing. I give this book a five star for my rating I love this book so much! I picture myself as bink I’m always bugging my family to play games with me and buy me stuff but I also sometime picture myself as gollie because my brother bugs me a lot to sometimes my friends say they picture me as their big sister because I’m always bugging them to do the right thing and always help them when they are in a bad situation or in trouble, they also say that I would most likely go across the world to see them!

  4. I read Bink and Gollie by Kate DiCamillo with my little brother. I loved the illustrations as much as I loved the written piece!
    Bink and Gollie is a terrific piece. I loved sharing the pictures with my younger brother. He was captured! The written part was just as fun. I could feel little Bink’s every move. Ms. Dicamillo is a wonderful author. My brother loved it and I read it 3 times over! I’m very glad Bink and Gollie were awarded the Rhode Island Children’s Book Award! Bink and Gollie completely deserved that award because it was written terrifically, it was mesmerizing and it had wonderful illustrations.

  5. I read “Bink and Gollie”, an RICBA book awards book. I thought it was a great book. I think this is a great book because it is detailed and tells you all the little things. In one chapter where Bink needs new socks and she never takes them off, they describe every little detail about the store and all of the different kinds of socks. It is also a great book because it has a good plot to it. The plot is mainly about friendship. It teaches you to be nice to your friends, respect their personalities and take care of them. Also, respect their belongings. If your friend gets a pet, then you should help them take care of it. This is why I think that Bink and Gollie is a great book

  6. I read the book pop. I really liked it. it was really good .There are funny parts too. Example they dancing while chewing bubble gum. It was fun learning about bubble gum. Like why bubble gum is pink and who invented bubble gum and how they invented it. It was invented by someone mixing random stuff together. That I read the book pop. It was a really good book. There are funny parts in it too. Example, they were dancing while bubble gum. Bubble gum was made by someone mixing stuff together. That is how bubble gum was made. I think people would enjoy reading pop!!! Joseph R

    I liked this book because it teaches me about friendship and how even best friends fight sometimes. It is very funny when Gollie accidentally spills pancake batter while talking on the phone with Bink. I would recommend this to someone who likes funny books,likes pancakes and socks and has a friend.

    I like Bink and Gollie ... A LOT! Bink is a very interesting character. Bink is younger than Gollie so Bink does not understand much about what Gollie says. Bink likes action in the real world.Gollie loves to use her imagination. I would recommend this to someone who likes hysterical comedy.
