Our award-winning friend Heckerty® — the hilarious 409 year old green-faced witch with a heart of gold — is back in her latest adventure storybook.
Heckerty's Valentine promises ever more laughs, and as your children giggle their way through her zany adventures and the storybook's magical illustrations, they'll discover important life values caring, honesty, integrity, and loyalty. They may even want to make Valentine cards!
Based on the forthcoming app of the same name, Heckerty's Valentine is the latest story in the Heckerty series. Heckerty's funny mistakes continue as the story opens with her visiting her fastidiously neat and tidy cousin Persnickerty. Her cousin insists on showing Heckerty how many Valentine cards she's getting, declaring herself the "most popular witch in Spellbound." Even her snooty, spoiled cat, Angelica, has admirers, boasts Persnickerty, suggesting that "Gelly" show her cards and presents to Heckerty's faithful but unkempt cat, Zanzibar. It's not his fault he's smelly and scruffy, Persnickerty declares, Heckerty neglects him.
Hurt by Zanzibar's depressed reaction to Angelica's cards and presents, Heckerty and Zanz return home where Heckerty promises Zanzibar he will have a Valentine's card. At this point Zanzibar comes up with his great idea that both of them will make cards for each other but they won't sign them so they won't know who sent them!
As in all Heckerty stories, everything turns out well in the end with both Heckerty and Zanzibar receiving cards from each other and both realizing that they are the other one's best friend.
