Zargon Zoo is a decent "interactive comic book" based on the children's book of the same name published by Heinemann ELT "New Wave Reader" series. Written for Level 2 (11-16 year-olds) students, the story is a fun "aliens visiting Earth" tale by Paul Shipton. In addition to digitizing the book to the computer screen in comic-book format, Zargon Zoo features an on-screen coloring book and a printable worksheet. The program has 'play' and 'read to me' modes, so anyone familiar with Broderbund's popular "Living Book" series will be at home with this program. All in all, a nice released that brings a great children's story to life on your PC, although Macmillan could have added many more features (such as edutainment games) that take more advantage of the PC. The story is also a bit too short, although I had fun while it lasts. Recommended for anyone interested in a good children's book that isn't aimed at very young kids. You might also have problems running the program if you don't have an older version of QuickTime (2.0) installed.
