Heckerty and her cat Zanzibar are at home, quietly preparing for Christmas, when cousin Persnickerty sweeps in with a special holiday surprise … a makeover for Heckerty! By the time Persnickerty’s done with her gifts: cloak, hat, broomstick and makeover, Heckerty looks so different that she hardly recognizes herself while Zanzibar screams and runs from her!
Jan Ziff’s extraordinary storytelling brings Heckerty to life in the great British tradition of Winnie the Pooh, Beatrix Potter, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan and other magical stories. Creative animations and great stories make Heckerty ideal for entertaining bored children, bedtime stories, and helping kids discover the joy of reading.
Heckerty is also a proven fun way to improve English reading in children and adults. SLPs and other specialists are using the Heckerty stories for children with autism and other special needs.
An Editor’s Choice by Children’s Technology Review, “Recommended by Educators” on Google Play for Education, awarded 4 Stars by CommonSense.org, Shorty Awards finalist, a Mashable Kids Pick and proclaimed a “must have” by The Unofficial Apple Weblog — Heckerty delivers! The superb narration and enchanting animations are ideal for children 3-8 years old, as well as anyone learning English.
