  • Mesmerizing... Polonsky creates unforgettable panels that enable us to see Anne Frank's writing in a fresh light

    Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (Germany)
  • Folman and Polonsky . . . focus on illuminating its humor, insight, and supporting cast in this spirited graphic adaption . . . Anne, drawn with large dark eyes, blooms like the hardiest, loveliest weed-a moody teenager whose wit, self-awareness, and rich fantasy life take center stage . . . The beauty of Anne's life and the untarnished power of her legacy-here further elevated by Folman and Polonsky-are heartening reminders of the horror of her fate.

    Publishers Weekly
  • Evocatively crafted, this comic brings Frank's world to life for all ages but takes care to respect and prioritize the primacy of her story in her own words.
