Anne Frank's compelling story is told for a picture book audience with an outstanding text and haunting, meticulously researched illustrations by Angela Barrett.
Anne Frank's diary telling the story of her years in hiding from the Nazis has affected millions of people. But what was she like as a small girl, at home with her family and friends; at play and at school? And how did an ordinary little girl come to live with such an extraordinary and tragically short life? In the first half of the book we meet Anne as a small child growing up with her family in Germany. Then we follow her flight to Holland to escape the Nazis; the German invasion and the gradual isolation, then outright persecution of the Jewish population which forces the family into hiding; the years in the Secret Annex; and her last heart-breaking journey.
