Shelfari edited the description of How Roland Rolls Saturday, September 28, 2013.
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! The story shows humanity’s interconnectedness through the metaphor of a wave in the ocean. The book is 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.
