"I'm a little bit bigger,
not a little bit smaller.
I'm a little bit taller --
I'm growing Rolie up!"
If Rolie Polie Olie grows a little every day, when will he be big enough?

William Joyce is the author and illustrator of many best-selling and award-winning picture books, including Rolie Polie Olie, Snowie Rolie, Dinosaur Bob, Santa Calls, and George Shrinks. He is also the creator of the Emmy Award-winning series Rolie Polie Olie on the Disney Channel. William Joyce lives in Shreveport, Louisiana, with his lovely wife, Elizabeth, and their children, Jack and Mary Katherine. They also have a dachshund named Rose.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2-Rolie Polie Olie is too small to go to Mount Big Ball and too big to jump on his bed eating ice cream. When he decides to use the "shrink-and-grow-a-lator," he becomes so small that his sister thinks he's a doll; next, he becomes so big that one jump puts him in outer space, and he winds up bruised, burned, and lonely. The family dog, with the help of mom and dad, helps Rolie get back to just the right size, and he decides that "I won't be in such a hurry to grow all Rolie up." The brightly colored characters, fashioned out of round balls, metal springs, and simple shapes, and the slightly futuristic, but somehow old-fashioned cartoon quality of the illustrations meet for a wonderfully playful effect. The spare, rhythmic text perfectly captures the conflicting desires of preschoolers to grow up and venture out, yet to be safe and close to home and family.
