This is an 18 page illustrated hardcover book with an optional AR (augmented reality) app. It is currently only available in Finland. This app was one of the winners of the 2017 BolognaRagazzi Digital award. Currently it is not available in the USA.

How it works: After you download the app, you point your camera at book cover or one of the illustrations to trigger an interactive landscape, which can be explored independently of the book. In the story the bears have hibernated, except for one, who wants to stay up and play. You can explore the woods (interacting with the other animals), visit the bear's den, knock down a pile of leaves or trace stars.

The book is only available in Finland, in Finnish. It is published by Tammi which is part of Bonnier Finland.

The app (which is free and requires the book in order to work) was designed by Danish studio Step In Books. Touching the screen while moving your device lets you move around in the world. In Finland, the books sells for 20 €. Here's an overview of the story and app: Learn more at http://stepinbooks.com/?portfolio=mur
