The funnyman`s new book, `How Rowland Rolls`, will be published by Perseus Books, this fall, CBS News reported.

The book is about an ocean wave that is afraid of crashing into the shore, but when it retreats farther into the ocean, it discovers its place in the world.

Carrey explained on the book`s website that he wrote it specifically as a way for parents and grandparents to engage with the kids in quality together-time.

"Not only will the message of the story help them feel connected, worthwhile, and a part of something vast and grand ... the very act of adults spending time simply to be with them, and only with them, will pay off in an experience of fulfillment that`s truly beyond compare," the website says.

The 51-year-old star also tweeted about his new deal: "How Roland Rolls`is my kids bk abt a little wave who learns he`s also the whole big wide ocean! Coming ths fall."

Meanwhile, Sabrina McCarthy , president of Perseus Distribution Client Servies said in a statement that the actor, who has one daughter and recently became a grandfather, was the perfect person to write a children`s book.
