About Heckerty

The Heckerty books, apps, and eBooks are based on a proven, successful series of children stories, originally created and brought to life by one of Britain’s most internationally successful storytellers. Each Heckerty story helps children (and adults) improve their English reading and vocabulary through rich interactive animation and graphics that kids love – and as they play, children discover important life values. The apps allow readers to choose between six languages (simplified or traditional Chinese, Spanish, French and German as well as English), so they are a wonderful ESL tool.

The Heckerty collection brings gentle, magically quirky British stories in the style of Winnie the Pooh, Beatrix Potter and Alice in Wonderland into the 21st century thanks to the talents of skilled actors, musicians, visual artists, technical wizards and production experts. The result is a unique blend of quality English storytelling merged with top 21st century technology and creative talent to create stories and activities your kids will love and play for hours on end!
