Kids Discover the Joy of Reading Great Literature

You are the next contestant on Alien Tales! Yes, it's your turn to match wits with witless extraterrestrials who claim to have written some of Earth's finest literature. Only you can set the record straight.

Join your celestial host Sal of deCentury, as you read passages from great books, answer questions, solve puzzles, and expose our celebrity panelists as preposterous pretenders. You'll win big time Starbucks, collect fabulous "virtual" prizes, and send planetoidal plagiarists like Yer Yout of YerMynd packing for Pluto.

Get set to log onto the Interstellar Broadcasting system and as Sal would say, "Beam on down!"

Reviews:

Computer Shopper, June 1995

"Our young testers enjoyed seeing their favorite stories and learning about new ones, and found the program easy to use and very entertaining.

"Alien Tales is the best reading comprehension software on the market (in fact, it has very little competition in that genre). Its first-rate graphics, animations and sound, and use of famous children's books make it the choice for young readers."
