"How Roland Rolls contains profound truths written in simple and moving prose for children. Jim Carrey speaks authentically and authoritatively about courage to challenge limitations and the freedom that ensues. Jim’s success as an artist and humanitarian is an eloquent testament of the truths he reveals in How Roland Rolls."
Human rights activist and pioneer
Former Director, Amnesty International
Philosophers and scientists struggle to understand cosmic consciousness, but Jim Carrey explains it with elegant simplicity to the child in all of us. We are the ocean rolling along as Roland the Wave becoming raindrop, river, cloud, and becoming the life throb of ages dancing in us this moment.”
Author, Teacher, Physician
Jim Carrey does for children what he does for adults, using humor and light- heartedness to reveal deeper insights. Like all great fairy tales, How Roland Rolls addresses ultimate truth in a fanciful package. Bravo.”
"Carrey’s created a charming, fun to read, beautifully illustrated book with Roland the wave as a metaphor for the interrelatedness of everything in the world."

Top Customer Reviews
Being aware of our inter-connectedness with others and the whole universe is part of the abundance consciousness movement promoted by many of the modern-day enlightened teachers. In How Roland Rolls, kids see that Roland is not limited by his thoughts, but is actually much bigger than those thoughts. He's capable of being whatever he wants to be.
It's important for kids to believe in themselves and see the many options they have in life, but I don't feel this book presented this concept in an easy-to-understand manner. Parents may need to spend some time explaining the story's intention. The large and bold illustrations are nicely done, and Carrey makes cameo appearances in cartoon fashion.
Reviewer: Alice Berger
Over-all, I recommend this book for perhaps an older kid, like 6-8.
It's a bit inconvenient with the pages that fold out, but seeing as it's not exactly meant for infants, I'm certain it won't bother us later :p
I personally think its great to have a children's storybook that has a very different take on death than just heaven. Will definitely be referring back to How Roland Rolls as she gets older and the time comes to talk about what it means :)
