I’ve been beefing up the Graphic Novels section in Children’s lately, and this is one of our newest. It’s written/illustrated by Sean Rubin who has done some lovely work on a series of Redwall books in the past. This is the charming story of a dinosaur and Sybil, the girl next door who has spotted him. Somehow, Bolivar has been able to make his way around New York City without being spotted by anyone but Sybil. Sybil is determined to get a picture of him to prove to her mother that he’s real. Naturally, she’s not having much luck. This is a really cute book, a perfect combination of hide-and-seek and adults not believing what they’re seeing. It’s a great read for any age, and would be a terrific first graphic for the very young.
