The Story of Annie Frank - Graphically
By: Elizabeth Hudson-Goff
Genre: Juvenile Graphic Novel
3 out of 5
I have been into reading biographical graphic novels, so I was excited when I saw this one come across my desk. I loved the Diary of Anne Frank and this story focused on the when and whys Anne started the diary. Her father played a part in the telling of the story as well. Like most nonfiction graphic novels, the story provided a quick brief overview of a true event, which is an excellent tool to gain interest in a topic. I think this would be an appropriate story for 7 to 10 year old. However, I was disappointed in the artwork. I actually think given the time period the story took place it, the artwork would have been awesome in black and white.
