WILL A TWINKIE really last forever? Are mail-order clubs a good way to buy compact discs? How can kids cut down on the amount of water their families waste? Is Reebok's "The Pump" worth $170?The answers can be found in Zillions: Consumer Reports for Kids. It's one of three excellent magazines for ages 8 and up. Along with Sports Illustrated for Kids and National Geographic WORLD, Zillions gives kids a timely, fun look at issues that matter to them. And all three magazines do it without talking down to kids.

A FUNNY THING happened to comic books on their way to the 1990s: They became respectable.In this decade, it's a rarity to see anyone under the age of 30 read printed material -- other than the instructions to the VCR or the millimeter-tall type in CD liner notes. So when a 10-year-old chooses to spend 20 minutes reading a Spiderman comic instead of playing Nintendo, parents consider it a literary triumph.Bigger publishers are getting in on the act. Little, Brown and Company has a new imprint, Sports Illustrated for Kids, that includes ''Buzz Beamer's Out of This World Series'' ($3.95, ages 8-12)
