Bink and Gollie is just about the cutest kids book of the year. Library Journal loved it: "My suggestion is that you create a Bink and Gollie section in your library. Clear a whole shelf off in your room and display your copies of this book proudly." It made the New York Times' list of Best Illustrated Children's Books of 2010.
If you're still not convinced, check out this preview video and see what we mean:
You can meet author Alison McGhee--and get a copy of the book inscribed to your own Bink or Gollie--Saturday, December 11, from 1:00pm to 2:00pm. She'll be joined by Steve Brezenoff, author of the young adult novel The Absolute Value of -1. Steve's book is a fantastic choice for older readers on your list.
