Get a first look at BOLIVAR EATS NEW YORK: A DISCOVERY ADVENTURE™, a new original graphic novel on-sale now from Bolivar creator Sean Rubin.
Debuting in 2017, Bolivar introduced readers to a dinosaur that lives in New York City—and his young neighbor Sybil who tries to tell everyone about him. The original graphic novel earned universal acclaim, including a prestigious selection as one of NPR’s “Best Books of 2017”, being named one of 2017 New York Public Library Best Books For Reading And Sharing, earning a 2017 Junior Library Guild Selection and earning a place as a 2018 Excellence In Graphic Literature Finalist: Best Children’s Books. Bolivar continued to impress audiences in 2018, earning nominations for 2018 Eisner Comics Industry Award for Best Kids’ Book (Ages 9-12) and 2018 Ringo Award for Best Kids Comic or Graphic Novel, while Rubin himself was named a finalist for the 2018 Russ Manning Most Promising Newcomer Award. The original graphic novel also earned starred reviews in top publications such as Publishers Weekly, Booklist and School Library Journal.
