Review:

Comedian, actor, and director Billy Crystal’s ode to his first grandchild will strike a chord with every expectant grandparent (and parents, too). Readers will feel the sweet anticipation building as Grandpa Crystal dreams about the baby’s upcoming birth. While the writing is at times awkward, the sentiment behind the text is genuine and universal, " I want to feel your heart beat as you lie upon my chest, bait your hook, fly your kite, help you study for a test." The narrator envisions peekaboo, horsey, and visits to the beach with a red-haired tot--his love virtually bubbles over. Pastel illustrations (reminiscent of the dreamy, soft-focus drawings in pregnancy books) by Elizabeth Sayles show the rugged, gray-haired gramps beaming as he partakes of the imagined pleasures to come. Crystal concludes with another awkward yet heartfelt verse:

Your mom is my daughter, and your dad is his mom’s son. You lived within your mommy, but now the time has come. Get ready, sweet little one-- Your life will be just great. I’m going to be your grandpa, and... I can hardly wait.
(All Ages) --Emilie Coulter

About the Author:

Tony Award-winning comedian, director, actor, and author Billy Crystal is just as importantly a grandfather. He charmed children and grown-ups alike as the voice of Mike Wazowski in Monsters, Inc. and starred in the hilarious movies Analyze This and City Slickers and He recently set box-office records with his smash Tony Award-winning one-man show on Broadway, 700 Sundays. The father of two grown daughters, Jennifer and Lindsay, Billy Crystal lives with his wife, Janice, in California.



Elizabeth Sayles, a well-known illustrator of children's books, is also an adjunct professor of illustration at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. She enjoyed working on this book because she could finally use her daughter as a model, and because she liked the way Mikele sees the world around her in imaginative ways.

Elizabeth Sayles lives in Valley Cottage, New York.
