Book Nook: Come Find Me

Action-movie hero, sitcom star, advertising pitchman, playable video game character, talent show host, high-end furniture designer, and human rights activist all describe the man that is TERRY CREWS. Crews is adding yet another title, children's book illustrator, in anticipation of his new, first-of-its-kind augmented reality book, COME FIND ME, which will be available for purchase online everywhere books are sold, just in time for Father's Day! In addition to purchasing the book, readers can freely download the accompanying Come Find Me app on iTunes or Google Play in order to pair with the book and make it come to life with eye-popping 3D moving imagery that corresponds to each page of the book.

Over 20-years ago, seeing a void of books for brown boys in the marketplace and holding strong the belief that 'you cannot be what you cannot see,' Terry and his then-teammate, Washington Redskins defensive end Ken Harvey, came up with a book about two brothers, Marcus & Anthony (also the names of Ken's sons, who the book is dedicated to) playing an imaginative game of hide-and-seek while becoming pilots, conductors, captains and race car drivers. Adding in a 21st century element, Crews worked with Augmented Island Studios to pair the book with an app that truly makes this one-of-a-kind book come alive.
