About this item

These rocks can really roll! Well, most of them, anyway... Get ready to meet a new rock group! From zippy, little pebbles to big strong boulders, the rocks get together to play and roll around their favorite hill, only to find that one of their friends, Ricky, can't roll with them. Unlike all of the others, who are all round, Ricky can't roll because he's flat on one side. Determined not to leave their friend behind, the rocks set out to help Ricky roll around - one way or another. This sweet, imaginative picture book, written in verse, brings a fresh set of characters to life in a story that highlights perseverance and triumph in the face of adversity, and the power of true friendship. Targeted for children ages 4-8, this is the first of a series of books featuring the You Rock Group that kids are sure to cherish as they grow, and learn from through empowering, motivating and fun-to-read stories.

About the Author

Jay Miletsky

Jay Miletsky is a reformed business author who has turned his attention to the far more creative, exciting and more competitive world of children's picture book writing, starting with "Ricky, the Rock that Couldn't Roll." He's currently working on more books featuring this unique cast of playful and memorable characters, along with other, independent titles such as the soon-to-be-released "Beware of the Nose-Biting Monster (a Cautionary Tale for Petrified Parents) ," and he's dreading the day when he runs out of new story ideas.

In the meantime, Jay lives in New Jersey, where he gets all of his creative inspiration from his amazing and beautiful daughter, Bria. He's an adjunct professor at Pratt Institute, where he teaches online business and social media marketing, and is the CEO of Sequel Media International, which publishes PuckerMob.com - one of the largest female-focused, viral content sites that focuses on love, life and relationships.

Jay graduated from Brandeis University with a BA in Economics, and still wishes he never left Boston.
