Sensitively edited and with a connecting commentary by editor,
Mirjam Pressler, the abridged edition of The Diary of a Young Girl
by Anne Frank gives younger readers their first introduction to the
extraordinary diary of an ordinary girl who has long become a
household name. This abridged edition has a short prologue written
by the editor, Mirjam Pressler, as well as a connecting commentary.
There are beautiful line drawings, family photographs, and an
Afterword to explain why the Diary ends so abruptly. This shorter
edition is ideal for younger children who want to read Anne's diary
for themselves but are too young to appreciate the teenage issues
that Anne faces during her time in hiding.
