Rolie Polie Olie
by William Joyce
Paperback from HarperCollins
Media Published: 2006-01-24
ISBN: 0060534842
 

Rolie Polie Olie lives way up high in the Rolie Polie sky with his mom, his pop, his sister, Zowie, and his dog, Spot. Follow Olie as he spends his day having fun under the Rolie Polie sun.

Spend a day with the Emmy-award winning robots in Rolie Polie Olie's family, complete with the Rolie Polie Rumba Dance done in underpants!

Any book that features robots dancing around in their underpants is a book worth owning. William Joyce--creator of Dinosaur Bob and George Shrinks--brings his expansive, wildly colored illustrations to the story of a cute, buglike robot and his family. Rolie Polie Olie lives on a faraway planet with his mom and pop, his sister Zowie, and his doggie Spot. They spend a pretty ordinary day playing, working, eating, and getting ready for bed in this delightfully modest tale of robotic family happiness. Joyce's bouncy prose is engaging enough to be read aloud time and again: "You're Rolie hot and Polie tired. Your motor's zapped. Your piston's fired. Yes, okey dokey is the day when all you Rolie did was play." The illustrations are vintage Joyce, with a 1930s deco look that's polished without being soulless. The pictorial lushness is a nice counterpoint to the simplicity of the tale, which devotes a grand full-page spread to the little-known fact that "The Rolie Polie Rumba Dance was always done in underpants!" --Claire Dederer

ISBN: 0064437426

Rolie Polie Olie's back with his new pal, Mr. Snowie!

Together they rocket to Chillsville to meet Klanky Klaus and dance the chilly cha cha. . . . What wonders a snowy day can bring!

What wonders a snowy day can bring! Rolie Polie Olie, a cute little arthropodish robot, often wishes for snow in his frost-free land. One day his dream comes true--the sun blows a bulb and snow begins to fall. Olie and his sister Zowie decide to build a buddy--named Mr. Snowie! As with the legendary Frosty the Snowman, all is well until the sun returns to its bright, warm state, then suddenly Mr. Snowie is in danger. "What to do? What to do? They had a friend they couldn't keep cool!" There's only one solution. It's time to rocket to Chillsville where they encounter scores of frosty friends for Mr. Snowie, including one very familiar looking jolly fellow with a white beard and a belly like a bowl full of jelly.

William Joyce, author-illustrator of Rolie Polie Olie, Rolie Polie Olie: A Little Spot of Color, and many other popular picture books, delights young readers with his quirky computer-generated characters and lighthearted adventures. Vivid colors, jaunty shapes, and playful, simple text are trademarks of Joyce's unique, contemporary style. (Ages 2 to 6) --Emilie Coulter

Sleepy Time Olie
Sleepy Time Olie
by William Joyce
Hardcover from HarperCollins
Media Published: 2001-10-02
ISBN: 0060296135
 

Rolie Polie evening--
Olie's almost sleeping.

His Rolie days
are without care,
especially when
Pappy's there.

But where is Pappy?
Where oh,
oh where?

Parents can be forgiven for wondering what it is that appeals about William Joyce's Ping-Pong-headed space hero, Rolie Polie Olie. But read about him and his family to any child under five, and there's no doubting that the attraction of the Rolie Polie Planet is powerful. In this rhyming bedtime adventure, Olie waits for a goodnight story from Pappy (grandpa), but Pappy turns up late and befuddled after a nasty bonk on the head. Olie saves the day by creating a sort of funny ray. (The adult but not the child will be irritated at the inconsistencies here: in one illustration Olie is filling a bucket with tricks and treats, and in the next this has inexplicably become a bubble-gun; equally inexplicably, it's described as a ray-gun.) "Then Olie burst into the room / and with his ray dispelled the gloom. 'I made a Pappy pick-me-up / to help old Pappy ungrow up.'" Shakespeare it isn't, but small kids are better than we are at empathizing with characters whose very souls seem to be made from Ping-Pong balls too. They love it! (Ages 3 to 5) --Richard Farr
