Description from the packaging.

An animated adventure for young readers.
"Once upon a time" is now!

The world's most popular fairy tales are in trouble! And it will take a very special child to save them.

Introduce your child to this charming and exciting world of reading and problem solving. With the help of the friendly Bookwyrm, children embark on a fun and exciting learning adventure. Along the way, they will be asked questions, given directions, and faced with puzzles based on their favorite fairy tales.

This sequel to the phenomenally popular Mixed-Up Mother Goose is a delightful way for children to expand their reading, logic, and problem solving skills. It's a perfect introduction to the exciting and important world of computers.

The mischievous Bookend has mixed up the pieces of five of the world's most beloved fairy tales.

"Can you help me put them together again?" the friendly Bookwyrm asks, and your child is off on an exciting learning adventure.

Your child enters his or her name, selects a character, and actually becomes part of the game.
