How Roland Rolls



The Inspiring New Book for Children (and their grown-ups!) from Jim Carrey!


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!

Illustrated by one of Jim’s friends, Rob Nason -who’s also an award-winning illustrator and animator- How Roland Rolls is dedicated to his grandson; the four songs on the EP are performed by Jim and his daughter, Jane; and the book itself is being released by his company, Some Kind of Garden Media.

Rob and Jim collaborating
Both Jim and Rob not only grew up in the same home town of Burlington Ontario, Canada. They both have been graced with the friendship of a Great Dane. George (Jim's). Cooper and Tatum (Rob's).

Aesthetics.  Book dynamics naturally allow us to believe and feel wave generations.
