How Roland Rolls

Funnyman Jim Carrey has published a book for children about a little ocean wave named Roland who learns about his place in the grander scheme of life.

Roland fears that his life will end once he reaches the shore. On his journey, Roland comes to realize that he is just one part of something much bigger – the ocean. The story shows humanity’s interconnectedness through the metaphor of a wave in the ocean.

Carrey explained why he wrote the book...

I wrote How Roland Rolls specifically as a way for parents and grandparents to engage with the children in quality together-time,” he said. “Not only will the message of the story help them feel connected, worthwhile, and a part of something vast and grand... the very act of adults spending time simply to be with them, and only with them, will pay off in an experience of fulfillment that's truly beyond compare.

The book is available in book stores on September 24, 2013. Jim Carrey may be best known as a movie star and comedian, but to him, his most meaningful roles are that of father to Jane and grandfather to her son, Jackson. The book is dedicated to his grandson.
