A funny family storybook for learning to read English
Do you think learning can be funny? Would you like to laugh while you learn English? Meet our award-winning friend Heckerty — a 409 year old green-faced witch, hilarious and with a heart of gold.
Our kind and gentle Heckerty learns that her cat Zanzibar is unhappy because she hasn’t planned a birthday party for him. So Heckerty decides to make him the best 5th birthday in the world, but as usual, her enthusiasm overtakes her abilities. When Heckerty's magic doesn’t work, the talented Caterina steps in and soon Zanzibar is enjoying a wonderful party with many new friends.
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.
An Editor’s Choice by Children’s Technology Review, awarded “Recommended by Educators” on Google Play for Education, 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.
