Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Joyce diverges from the hyperbolic, pleasurably bizarre imagery he created for The Leaf Men and Dinosaur Bob in this digitally enhanced but uneventful picture book. Rolie Polie Olie is a robotic child living in a "land of curves and curls," where most objects are rounded and smooth (although the rooms of Olie's teapot-shaped house have corners). Olie himself is comprised of a round yellow head with the circular black eyes of a smiley face. On his spherical torso, he wears red shorts whose dual buttons recall Mickey Mouse's signature pants, and he stands on pliable metallic limbs that resemble pay-phone cords. In this day-in-the-life story, "Rolie Polie Olie/ rolled out of bed./ Brushed his teeth./ Recharged his head." After a breakfast of "Rolie O's," Olie and his parents, sister and dog perform a morning ritual: "The Rolie Polie Rumba Dance/ was always done in underpants!" Olie then helps the family with chores, plays ball (of course), gets in a tiff with his sister, apologizes and goes to bed forgiven. Joyce makes use of round "O"s in his rhymes and liberally applies "Rolie" as an adjective ("Yes, okey dokey is the day/ when all you Rolie did was play"). Thanks to computer manipulation, his plasticine paintings offer crisp edges, flawless high-tech color and a seeming three-dimensionality. Olie's shiny surface doesn't make up for his lack of a personality, but the character practically steps out of the frames, advertising his potential as a toy or animated image. Ages 2-8. (Oct.) Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
Publishers Weekly
Fans of the television series will welcome this tangible introduction to Rolie Polie Olie's world. PW said that the 3-D hero "practically steps out of the frames." Ages 2-5. (Feb.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
A refreshing approach in children's books, this amazing story and its equally amazing pictures are fun, quirky and a bit off the wall. Rolie Polie, a little round robot guy, lives with his family on a round planet. Everything is round, you see, and the story takes us through Rolie Polie's day. The rhyming text is fun to say out loud and hear due to its comic and repetitious verses. The computer-generated characters are sure to become classics. In fact, they have already been made into a cartoon series for the Disney channel. Rolie Polie acts just like a normal kid, but in not so normal surroundings. Very appealing and now available in board book form! 2003 (orig. 1999), HarperCollins, Ages 2 to 6.

    KIDS LOVE THIS BOOK

    My sister is an elementary school teacher and introduced this book to my two year old daughter after telling me how much her second graders liked it. I rolled my eyes and thought, 'this book is going to be way over a two year old's head.' Was I ever wrong! She sat still with rapt attention and within three weeks of hearing this every night at bedtime, she is now able to recite the book word for word as she goes through each page. If you didn't know better, you would think she was actually able to read the words! She will even quote sections of the book while riding in the car. If you can find copies of this book anymore, I highly recommend it!

    THE BEST BOOK

    I have a 1 year old and a 3 year old who both LOVE this book. We can not read it once, we have to read it at least 3 times. You can't make a better choice if your children are Olie fans. Ours is so tattered from reading it over and over, I definately got my money's worth and more from this one.

    Rolie Polie Rhumba dance

    I have a two year old nephew who can not get enough of this book. He even does a little dance (after I showed him a rumba dance). He'll run around saying Olie until he finds the book and wants it read over and over. Not that anyone minds- even the adults love it as much as he does. He's such a great character that he puts me in a great mood. The show introduces one or two additional great characters. And you can not beat the art work.
