Hollywood funnyman Billy Crystal has launched his first children's book - declaring it an ode to his first grandchild ELLA.

The book entitled I ALREADY KNOW I LOVE YOU is said to be a "love poem" for his grandchild.

The ANALYSE THAT star says, "It's profoundly moving when your baby has a baby."

Crystal, 57, launched the book at the CHILDREN'S MUSEUM in New York last Tuesday (31APR04) - reading extracts of his first publication to eagerly awaiting 5-year-olds.
