Here is the official game description:

"Book of Spells is the first title for Wonderbook, a unique single-player
virtual reading/entertainment experience exclusive to PlayStation 3.

The latest addition to the PlayStation augmented reality series,
the Wonderbook system combines game software,
and the Wonderbook peripheral (sold together as a Book of Spells bundle,),
along with PlayStation Eye camera and PlayStation Move motion controller
(both sold separately), to bring words to life for readers as never imagined.

The story and interactive activities built into Book of Spells are steeped in the Harry Potter
universe, and are designed to capture the imaginations of new and longtime fans alike. "
Written by Miranda Goshawk over two hundred years ago,
Book of Spells can be found in the restricted section of the Hogwarts library-
and now it has come to you.

Book of Spells provides students with a safe environment in which to read,
discover, learn and practice spells they already know and love, such as Incendio,
Wingardium Leviosa and Expelliarmus, as well as discover mischievous notes and spells
scribbled into the margins by previous Hogwarts students, and humorous anecdotal facts
relating to the spells.

J.K. Rowling has written a conundrum that leads you through the experience,
providing insight into the values a witch or wizard has to learn, and inviting you to journey
through the book to unlock new content, rewarding successful students along the way.
