Bolivar

Bolivar

What would you do if your neighbor was a dinosaur?

Going extinct isn't for everyone.

Sybil knows that there is something off about her next door neighbor, but she can't seem to get anyone to believe her. Everyone is so busy going about their days in the busy streets of New York City that they don't notice Bolivar. They don't notice his odd height, his tiny arms, or his long tail. No one but Sybil sees that Bolivar is a dinosaur.

When an unlikely parking ticket pulls Bolivar into an adventure from City Hall to New York’s Natural History Museum, he must finally make a choice: continue to live unnoticed, or let the city see who he really is.

    Bolivar is my favourite kind of "children's book" -- the kind that hides in the category until people discover it's far more than just a kid's picture book. Narratively Bolivar flows through text and ...

  • Nathan Hipple

    Great book for younger readers looking for hefty standalone graphic novels. The artwork features top notch panel work blended with a Calvin & Hobbes esque level of expressive storytelling. I highly re...
