Meet Heckerty is the first in the Heckerty storybook series and introduces our zany, funny friend and her loyal cat Zanzibar. In this story, Heckerty mistakenly turns her face bright green while trying to make magic soap to wash her face beautiful for a passport picture! Stuck with her green face, Heckerty worries that people won't like her any more because now she’s different.
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.
