Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 4-6--Anne's life and death have become the foremost symbol of the Holocaust. This concise biography, which focuses on the years in hiding, explains how the Franks, the Van Pels, and Dr. Pfeffer managed to survive for as long as they did with the help of Miep Gies. Archival photographs, a full-color map of Europe 1943-1944, and a diagram of the secret annex accompany the text, which is printed on sepia-tinted paper. The list for further reading includes Internet sites. While not as handsomely designed as Ruud van der Rol's Anne Frank (Viking, 1993), this title is a good introduction to the immortalized young woman and to the story of the publication of her diary. It should motivate students to read the diary and other books about World War II.--Susan Pine, New York Public Library
