Funny man Jim Carrey has done many movies for kids, but it's only this month that he's released his first children's book. The star's "How Roland Rolls," about a wave that learns everything is connected, is dedicated to his 3-year-old grandson Jackson, his daughter Jane's little guy. "When I was a child," Carrey told USA Today, "my parents were smokers and I had a deep fear that they would die … and then what would happen to me? I think that's a common fear for children — the fear of loss." And it doesn't hurt to make them laugh along the way! Credit: Jeffrey Ufberg/WireImage
