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.

An Editor’s Choice by Children’s Technology Review, 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.

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 and Zanzibar screams and runs from her!

A dejected Heckerty goes out to fly around finds herself helping several people in need …  Returning home, Zanzibar is thrilled when Heckerty arrives at the cave, looking just like her old self.

Kind and gentle, Heckerty learns every day from her own silly mistakes. And as kids laugh their way through her zany adventures and their magical interactive animations, they discover important life values — caring, inclusiveness, loyalty and integrity.

Everyone loves Heckerty and as you watch your child improve their reading and vocabulary while laughing with Heckerty, you will, too!
