As reviewer Ruth Franklin points out, the remaking of Diary of a Young Girl into an illustrated novel doesn’t seem necessary, at first blush.
And it also requires heavy editing, something that readers were shocked to learn that Anne Frank’s father had done (along with Anne herself). Otherwise, it would have been literally thousands of pages long.
Yet Franklin’s review of Anne Frank’s Diary: The Graphic Adaptation left us curious, in a good way, about this updated version, not to mention the original, which we last read in middle school.
