This book is unlike any other you’ve seen. Of course, it works just like a normal book; you start reading at the beginning, and read it right through to the end. That will work just fine. But you can also download the free ‘AR Reads’ app onto a smartphone or tablet, point it at parts of the book and watch it become reality. Your choice!
