Mr Carrey's book, How Roland Rolls, is his first published work for children.Tackling big concepts in picture storybooks can be a daunting task for even the most seasoned children’s book authors. What is refreshing about Jim Carrey’s inaugural effort is that every foldout page, every word, and every frenetic illustration in this unique book seem to flip tradition on edge.
Gelett Burgess Center Executive Director Nicholas Beatty states, "Mr. Carrey's book exemplifies exactly what we're looking for in children's books. The consummate storyteller, Carrey understands the inner workings of a child's mind. Why else would children beg for more?"
Many hours have been spent interviewing readers, reviewing new releases, and sifting through bookshelves in order to find the perfect match for the Gelett Burgess Center's mission.
