Stories that present children as wonderful thinkers, trying to find answers to their many questions in life, are a very wonderful thing. As a parent, Bolivar from Archaia (an imprint of BOOM! Studios) is a fantastic tale of a dinosaur living in New York City – and like many things in life, people are too busy to notice. Sean Rubin writes and illustrates this story and gives parents and their children a phenomenal look into those who might be overlooked in life, including the one girl who can see this dinosaur.
