Judge David Johnson is also known as Bink. In Honduras.
Can't we all just get along?
Scholastic has uncorked another batch of its read-along stories, headlined by a 2012 production of…well…let's just go straight to the breakdown.
• "Bink & Gollie"
• "A Sick Day for Amos McGee"
• "The Other Side"
• "Cat and Canary"
Bink & Gollie is yet another nifty little Scholastic set, bound together with the theme of friendship (in addition to "tolerance" and "respect" according to the marketing on the cover). The notable thing about "Bink & Gollie" is it's almost fully animated, versus the standard-issue pan and scan.
The DVD: Mix of full frame and 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen, Dolby 2.0 Stereo, English subtitles, and author/artist interviews.
Nice stories, well-told. Should appeal to lots of kiddos. And parents can rest easy knowing that the themes are sound.
