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.
