This graphic novel is a gorgeous well-written portrayal of the events of Anne Frank's life and life during WWII. This is a perfect addition to a home collection or any young adult collection. The writing and art work are easy to relate to and the graphic presentation is a relevant and appealing display. ( )

Quite an extraordinary book. It helps provide historical context for Frank, her family, and the diary. I wish I had come across it when I was a teenager.

It really is just right. ( )

How do I rate this "Liked It" when it's such a tragic story? ( )

RGG: It's a graphic biography, not a graphic version of Anne Frank's Diary, meaning it lacks emotional intensity, but it does provide to the reader who pays attention a lot of context knowledge. Reading Interest: 10-12.

One of my favorite books from my childhood was The Diary of Anne Frank, so I knew that I would find a graphic biography of her life fascinating. This graphic novel goes above and beyond, detailing her life beginning before the rise of the Nazi Movement to beyond her death and the eventual publishing of her diary. Having her life detailed in picture brought a new meaning and emotion to her story, which is obviously harrowing. The illustrations are excellent here, and the layout reminds me of the comics that you would find in a newspaper, which is a really interesting format. I would love to see this book used in a classroom setting while teaching history either as an addition to The Novel or possibly as a substitution for The Novel, as I found it equally as affecting.

This account was created with the full cooperation of the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam. Historical contexts, maps, charts, and time lines make the story useful for all ages as a starting point for meeting the plucky Anne as not only memorializer of the Holocaust but also a delightful, perceptive heroine in her own right. The color art is attractive and evocative. An essential purchase.

Epigraph
Dedication
I would like to dedicate this book to my children, Seth and Kathy, who but for the
fortune of time and place could have suffered the tragic fate of the
young sisters you are about to meet.
-SID JACOBSON
Watching my daughters grow into young women gave me a deep sense of what
Anne Frank and her sister Margot missed and what a loss they were to us all.
This one is for Amanda, Luisa, and Rebecca.
-ERNIE COLON
First words
"Have I ever told you anything about our family?" Anne Frank asked her diary on May 8, 1944.
