Abstract

This paper researches the position and the genres of children’s electronic literature within the larger context of electronic literature, focusing on its most representative form — electronic picture books. It explores their rich narrative possibilities and regards them as an autochthonous children’s electronic literary genre, a gateway that leads a young reader into the world of electronic literature.
