Jim Carrey Self-Publishes His First Children’s Book

by Rachel Baker on September 26, 2013

Jim Carrey, best known for his movies, has published a children’s book titled, How Roland Rolls (Some Kind of Garden Media, $16.95).

Carrey says his book is about understanding the “oneness of all life” through the metaphor of Roland, who realizes that he is part of the ocean and not simply a wave that’s separate from it. “I want the book to alleviate children’s fears about loss and what would happen to them if they were left alone,” said Carrey, whose favorite childhood authors were Dr. Seuss and Charles M. Schulz. “It’s an early existential crisis, one that I experienced as a child when I was afraid that my parents would die. But when we realize that beneath the surface of things – the activities of our lives – we are all connected, that fear of loss gets softened.”
