All righty then! Celebrate the tall and short of a marvellous friendship with a new Bink and Gollie adventure exuding the quirky wit and charm of a multi-award-winning team. Gollie is quite sure she has royal blood in her veins, but can Bink survive her friend's queenly airs - specially if pancakes are not part of the deal? Bink wonders what it would be like to be as tall as her friend, but how far will she stretch her luck to find out? And when Bink and Gollie long to get their picture into a book of record-holders, where will they find the kudos they seek? You can find slapstick and sweetness, drollery and delight in a new follow-up to the award-winning Bink and Gollie, written by beloved and best-selling authors Kate DiCamillo and Alison McGhee and brought to hilarious life by New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Book award-winner Tony Fucile. This is the hilarious and sweet third instalment from the award-winning pair of best friends - one short, one tall, both bound to be friends for ever. Tony Fucile's exuberant illustrations leap off the page, making every one of Bink and Gollie's lively expressions and lovable antics a dollop of sheer delight.
