This paper discusses an evaluation of the English e-book which have been prescribed for use in grade 7 classes by the Indonesian Ministry of National Education in state-owned junior highschools. A 108 items of a modified e-book evaluation checklist was responded by 7 teachers and 96 students. It is to expose their perceptions concerning various aspects of the e-book. Both parties were asked to what extent the e-book had represented all the aspects of the standard of the e-book for English learning. Findings revealed that from 11 indicators, the teachers and the students displayed moderate positive perception in evaluating the nine indicators, namely; the general appearance, design and illustration, topic content, language component, social and cultural context, language skills, flexibility, and vocabulary and grammar. Meanwhile, they perceived negatively in evaluating the last two indicators, namely; the e-book elements and the interactivity. Suggestions are offered for the future revision and/or designing a need-based e-book for young learners of English.
