Jim Carrey, the actor who is very funny in comedy classics like The Mask and Ace Ventura has written a picture book. How Roland Rolls is a book that is at the crest of a tide of books written by big named celebrities trying their hand at being an author. Jim Carrey takes the story of a wave in the middle of the ocean and develops it into a story about how we are all important. Roland realizes that waves are not separate but all part of an entire ocean.
With beautiful illustrations from Rob Nason to complement the simple text that is best for children between 4-8, How Roland Rolls is sure to make a splash! ”
