224 (2011 #29). Anne Frank - graphic biography

by Sid Jacobson and Ernie Colon

A biography of the famous Holocaust diarist in graphic-novel format, this book provides additional background and context on Anne Frank's family and historical events of the time. I've read a lot of Anne Frank books and I learned a lot from this one, perhaps because the authors had access to many materials at the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam, which commissioned this project. The format makes this important story accessible and inviting to an audience that might not otherwise read the diary or other accounts of Frank's life.

  1. Nice! I will have to read this one. The library could certainly use more graphic materials too. (I will have to try our new format finder in the catalog and see if it works with this title). Good job Amanda.

  2. Thanks Tracy. We might be able to convince Melissa to bump this one up the cataloging queue.
