Heckerty was created by Ann Rachlin, one of England’s most famous storytellers, and Ezra Rachlin as a kind and zany witch and gentle friend to young children as they enjoyed wonderful adventures together.
Heckerty’s endless, funny mistakes in her magic, the relationship with her cat Zanzibar and the story of her fellow witches and wizards make for marvelous stories and books. With Jan Ziff’s extraordinary storyteller performance as Heckerty, this apps is in the great British storytelling tradition that includes books like Winnie the Pooh, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, Beatrix Potter and Harry Potter.
Children of many of England’s best-known parents attended Ann’s classes — from royal families to top artists and numerous prominent figures. Over the years, hundreds and even thousands of kids met and loved Ann’s funny, green-faced Heckerty.
