Microsoft distributes the CD-ROMs of the Magic School Bus series,
which, like the videos, distributed by KidVision (home use), are based on
the PBS TV series, which, in turn are based on the Scholastic Books.
It's all rather like a Russian matrioska doll--doll within doll within
doll; or, "how many formats can dance on the page of one book"?
