“HOW ROLAND ROLLS” is a story about a wave named Roland who’s afraid that, one day, when he hits the beach, his life will be over. But when he gets deep, he’s struck by the notion that he’s not just a wave ~ he’s the whole big, wide ocean!
How Roland Rolls is Jim Carrey’s first book. It’s aimed at children aged four to eight. Over the past 20 years, Carrey has made us laugh with his comedic films (Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, Dumb and Dumber, Liar, Liar and Bruce Almighty), provoked us with his serious ones (Man on the Moon, The Truman Show, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) and enchanted us with his family fare (How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Mr. Popper’s Penguins). Now he entertains, enlightens and inspires with How Roland Rolls. The book charmingly and wittily presents the universal truth of humanity’s interconnectedness and unity through the metaphor of a wave in the sea.
The book is also lavishly illustrated by Rob Nason, who won a Golden Reel award for his work as Art Director on the film Anastasia, as well as an Annie Awards nomination. His work on Thumbelina garnered the Hans Christian Andersen award. His cover for the inspiring grass-roots children’s book, Saltwater Taffy, was nominated as Cover of the Year and was a finalist for the prestigious Benjamin Franklin award.
