The market for children's electronic books in CD-ROM format is fast developing. Europress Software released in May 1995 the first of what they hope will be a series of children's classics. This study examines the way in which this classic is presented, how it is received by end users, both children and adults and what the potential is for such products. The use of such a format for delivering children's classics is also examined in terms of its advantages and disadvantages. A list of suggestions for future products, both in terms of content and suitable titles is also included.
