There is no child whose mother tongue is Russian who doesn't know poems by Korney Chukovsky. His books are still among the very first books which parents read to every Russian child - despite the fact that his first versed tale - "The Crocodile" - dates back to as early as 1916 and most of the children's poems that made him famous were written in 1920s. Parents and even grandparents who now read books by Korney Chukovsky to kids, can well remember how they listened to these very verses themselves - many years ago. That's why they will by all means like multimedia books based on tales by Korney Chukovsky.

There are eleven multimedia books on an imaginary bookshelf; one а them (containing video) is free. The e-books contain a lot of other things for kids and their parents - pictures for coloring, as well as plenty of info about Korney Chukovsky, how his famous books were written, etc. All this will be interesting for both kids and grown-ups.

A small kid will enjoy listening a tale or looking at pictures. A pre-school child will be glad to watch an animation cartoon or a theatrical play, color a picture with favourite heroes on it. By the way, coloring pictures can be moved on the screen, enlarged, rotated; it is also possible to save them, or send by e-mail (for example, to Mom). And they can be printed as well.

Even teenagers and adults will be able to learn something new to them from these books: they can read plenty of interesting things about Korney Ivanovich Chukovskiy and learn when and how his poems- the poems that millions of children and adults remember and love - were created.

Korney Ivanovich Chukovsky (Russian: Корней Иванович Чуковский, 31 March NS 1882 - 28 October 1969) was one of the most popular children's poets in the Russian language. His poems, Doctor Aybolit (Айболит), The Giant Roach (Тараканище), The Crocodile (Крокодил), and Wash'em'clean (Мойдодыр) have been favourites with many generations of Russophone children. He was also an influential literary critic and essayist.

Nikolay Vasilyevich Korneychukov was his original name (Russian: Николай Васильевич Корнейчуков), which he reworked into his now familiar pen-name while working as a journalist at Odessa News in 1901. He was born in St. Petersburg, the illegitimate son of Ekaterina Osipovna Korneychukova (a peasant girl from the Poltava region of Ukraine) and Emmanuil Solomonovich Levinson, a man from a wealthy Jewish family (his legitimate grandson was mathematician Vladimir Rokhlin). Levinson's family did not permit his marriage to Korneychukova and they eventually separated. Korneychukova moved to Odessa with Nikolay and his sibling. Levinson supported them financially for some time, until his marriage to another woman. Nikolay studied at the Odessa gymnasium, where one of his classmates was Vladimir Zeev Jabotinsky. Later, Nikolay was expelled from the gymnasium for his "low origin" (a euphemism for illegitimacy). He had to get his secondary school and university diplomas by correspondence.
