How Roland Rolls Hot
The book is lavishly illustrated by Rob Nason, who won a Golden Reel award for his work as Art Director on the film Anastasia, as well as an Annie Awards nomination. His work on Thumbelina garnered the Hans Christian Andersen award. His cover for the inspiring grass-roots children’s book, Saltwater Taffy, was nominated as Cover of the Year and was a finalist for the prestigious Benjamin Franklin award.
A totally delightful children's book with a profound story told with the whimsey one would expect from Jim Carey. Roland the wave discovers the great cycle of life, including its storms, friendship, love and even "death" on coastal sands. But then, as he retreats from the shore back to the depths, he discovers that he is a part of the vast beingness of water in all its forms.
Written in Dr. Seussian rhyme and masterfully illustrated, this book is a delight for the ears, eyes and spirit. It is a unique and charming way to introduce children to the concept of universal consciousness and oneness, and I believe it is destined to become a children's classic.
