[prMac.com] Freienbach Village, Switzerland - Innovative mobile e-book developer JustKidsApps is pleased to announce the release of the second in its Heidi storybook series for the iPad. In Heidi Part II, Heidi's journey continues as her aunt Dete takes her from her grandfather's quiet mountain home to live in Frankfurt with 12-year-old Klara and her family. Follow Heidi's struggles and triumphs as she clashes with the family's housekeeper, Miss Rottenmeier, and learns to read and write.
