Famed duos of stage and film tap-danced in my head while the authors’ agent explained that the hilarious new text about treehouse-dwellers Bink and Gollie was something the two friends ‘just had to do together,’ ” says Karen Lotz, president and publisher of Candlewick Press. “Then Tony ‘The Scamp’ Fucile came on board with his inimitable comedic timing and characterization. I thought: ‘Curtain up!’ ”
