Diary of Anne Frank
Sensitively edited and with a connecting commentary by editor, Mirjam Pressler, the abridged edition of The Diary of Anne Frank gives younger readers their first introduction to the extraordinary diary of an ordinary girl who has long become a household name.
In July 1942, 13-year-old Anne Frank and her family hide from the Nazis in an Amsterdam warehouse. Over the next two years, Anne describes in her diary the day-to-day life in the house and confides her innermost thoughts and feelings.
This abridged edition has a short prologue written by the editor, Mirjam Pressler, as well as a connecting commentary. There are beautiful line drawings, lots of family photographs, and an Afterword to explain why the Diary ends so abruptly. This shorter edition is ideal for younger children who want to read Anne's diary for themselves.
