Anne Frank's diary telling the story of her years in hiding from the Nazis has affected millions of people. But what was she like as a small girl, at home with her family and friends; at play and at school? And how did an ordinary little girl come to live such an extraordinary and tragically short life? In the first half of the book we meet Anne as a small child growing up with her family in Germany. Then we follow her flight to Holland to escape the Nazis; the German invasion and the gradual isolation, then outright persecution, of the Jewish population which forces the family into hiding; the years in the Secret Annex; and her last heart-breaking journey.

" "Exquisitely and imaginatively illustrated, this is a sensitive retelling of the moving story of Anne Frank" - Jacqueline Wilson "Josephine Poole and Angela Barrett produce a very different kind of classic. Snow White and Joan of Arc are two books that every child should have. Everything here is perfect - tone, composition, imagination and mood. Barrett's... Joan of Arc is given a medieval feeling that conveys the idealism and painful youth of its heroine" - Independent on Sunday "Barrett's illustrations interact with Poole's spare yet poetic account to create a truly stunning picture book in which the enigma of this charismatic, driven girl is poignantly evoked" - Books for Keeps on Joan of Arc "Words and images complement each other with strength and grace" - TES on Snow White"
