This sequel has many of the same lovable aspects as Kate DiCamillo and Alison McGhee's first Bink & Gollie book. Kids who liked that book definitely will like this one. And they'll enjoy seeing the girls' friendship grow even stronger. While young kids may be a little confused by the crystal ball episode, they'll definitely see the humor, and then disappointment and tenderness, in the other two stories.

The format is simple: It's a story told in three parts, all very pertinent to kids in the early grades, with minimal text and fantastically expressive illustrations by animator Tony Fucile. His uses bits of color splashed here and there amid computer-generated thin-lined sketches to fill out the story, which makes readers want to stop and cruise around each page. This is a fun series, sure to have at least a few more follow-up adventures.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
