There are two ways to do it:

Method #1 (The Reality Version)

1. Got a copy of The Lion & the Mouse nearby? Got a camera? Grab them.

2. Hold the book up in front of your face, making sure it hides your entire head, hair and all.

3. Get a friend/family member/stranger standing next to you to snap a picture. You’re all set.

4. Post it to your site along with this text.

Method #2 (The Virtual Reality Version)

1. Save this copy of The Lion & the Mouse cover on your computer (click to enlarge).
