Jim Curious: A Voyage to the Heart of the Sea
by Matthias Picard
Abrams Books for Young Readers, 2014. 3-D picture book

Jim Curious sets out in his diving suit and jumps into the ocean.  He finds fish, a sunken ship and ruins of a deserted underwater city.  When he makes it back to his home, he finds that everything has magically changed.  This is a wordless book that comes with 3-D glasses.  They can be found in a pouch at the back of the book. With the glasses on the reader can see the mostly two color pictures on each page in multiple layers.  The fish and shark pop out and the ruined city sinks into the background. The effect is impressive and will delight young and old alike. This is one to try, but be sure to return the glasses with the book so the next person can enjoy it too.
