Product description

A simple and moving account of the life of Anne Frank, the young girl who evaded the Nazis for two years before finally dying in Bergen-Belsen.

It answers your questions about Anne’s life, and includes memories from her surviving friends, a historical note and a map. Read it along with Anne Frank’s diary to explore a young life cut short by war.

    I love this book, but it is certainly one of the sadness books I have every read. When reading it, I couldn’t believe that Anne Frank had actually wrote this and that she actually had to go through what she did, I’m so sad that she didn’t make it to the end of the war and see her diary being published and live her dream. This book is very similar to the boy in the stripe pyjamas, so it’s defiantly one or the older ones! X

    I really liked this book because it makes you use your imagination about what it was like to live Anne Franks life from when she was a baby to a teenager (aged 15) I really enjoyed reading it, but the reason why I didn’t give it 5 stars is because it was horrifyingly sad :(

    Well, on the whole, it’s a very interesting book! The way it is re-written for younger children (7-8, perhaps!)relitavely well. However, it’s still quite a sad story! I could only bring myself to read it a few times – maybe no more than 3. That’s why I am rating it 4 stars, and not 5. But anyway, I do recommend it if you understand the situation!

    Referring back to the sad but loving Diary, I learnt a lot and it was very good because her life was retold to me in such a way that it goes wilder than your and my imagination.

    Rating this a 10/10 I would be accurate to say, this autobiography is one of the best!

    This is the story and diary of Anne Frank, a normal Jewish girl whos life completely turns around when her family goes into hiding. She has to make some tough decisions and begins a brief romance with an older boy from another family who are also in hiding. This story will bring tears to your eyes and make you laugh and keep you on the edge of your seat all at the same time. The Frank family are betrayed by the people who own the attic they are hiding in but Anne’s diary ends before they are betrayed. This story made me appriciate how lucky I am not to be in hiding and to use the freedom I have instead of watching TV all day.

    I went to Amsterdam with my school when I was in year 6 to see where Anne had to Hide. It was a really important school trip for me & memorable as I was almost the same age & couldn’t imagine keeping quiet for so long! Every child should READ this book to remember how lucky we are not to have to hide & enjoy the freedom we have
