Bolivar Read Online Free - 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.
School Library Journal says...
"Bolivar the dinosaur speaks to the introvert in all of us. That part deep down inside that encourages us to hide away from the world, keep to ourselves, and avoid any and all connections for fear of getting hurt. Dinosaurs may not be around anymore but Bolivars abound. Even little Bolivars who will pick up this book and instantly connect with someone just like them. So for the Bolivars and the Manhattan-lovers, the graphic novel enthusiasts and the parents just looking for a good bedtime story, Bolivar the book is the place to go. Dino-mite stuff."

It took a year and a half for me to notice, but by then it was too late.
I moved to the Chicago area from New York City in what can only be described as a fairly seamless transition. Going from one large metropolitan area to another large metropolitan area, albeit one with suburbs, didn't prove to...

The story here is just ok, it could have been cleaned up with some tweaks and tightening but that's not what we're here for.
We're here for the pictures!
I think this is what we'd get if Mercer Mayer and Bill Waterson had a storydrawing wunderkind named Sean. It's an absolute delight, visually.

Bolivar is the last dinosaur. He does not want to be noticed, so he lives in the perfect place - New York City - where everyone is too busy to notice a dinosaur in their midst. He goes to museums, hits the deli for corned beef sandwiches, and haunts used book stores. But his neighbor, a young gir...

Bolivar was such a fun read, even for adults. The story is clever and amusing, and the illustrations are so beautiful and also have little hidden gems. I had the opportunity to purchase a few as gifts during the initial release and look forward to buying others to give out. Bolivar will be a wond...

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 recommend taking your time while you read to really pay attention to all the small touches in e...

A truly beautiful graphic novel that finally answers the question about what happened to the dinosaurs. After all, what would NYC be without the last dinosaur living there!

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 image, the story only half-told through text and half-told through art. It's a simple story but a...

This was a very cute, very beautifully-illustrated, emotionally-resonant book. Huge amounts of detail in the pictures! I'm classifying it as a graphic novel at school although it's more like a picture book -- but it's 224 pages long, and has a lot of little clevernesses in it for older readers. M...

Positively delightful. The detail of the illustrations is stunning. I spent a lot of time just looking at the art. Plus, there was a dinosaur.
