Summary: Bink and Gollie return in the third book, Bink and Gollie: Best Friends Forever. Like usual, there are three chapters. The first is Empire of Enchantment, Gollie finally finds out that royal blood is in her veins. She ventures off to say hello to her fellow servants, but in the end decides that friends are better, so she goes back to Bink! The second chapter is Why Should You Be Shorter Than Your Friends? Bink doesn’t like the fact that she’s short and Gollie can do everything she can’t. She orders a ‘stretch-o-meter’, and well… things get a little rusty. But have no fear, for PEANUT BUTTER IS HERE! Oh, and Gollie. The third chapter is Kudos, Bink and Gollie. The two friends try to get into their version of the world book challenge.

What I Liked Best About This Book: Well, first off, IT’S BINK AND GOLLIE. Who doesn’t love those two? It might be better for younger kids, like first graders. Although, it’s always fun to read a book like this. Bink and Gollie always have funny things to say. There have been three Bink and Gollie books so far, and I’ve read all of them. It might seem a little kid-ish, but this is like another version of that Pigeon book to me.  --SA
