This CD-ROM version of Pie?kowski's bestselling pop-up book is aimed at 4-to-8-year-olds. All the stars of the original are here, including the alien-eating alligator in the bathtub. Hidden throughout the 10 rooms are games and keys to the creepy cellar, where more fun awaits. Two benefits of the CD-ROM over the book: superb sound effects and music—even classical snippets parents may recognize. (CD-ROM for Mac and PC, Philips Media, $34.99)
