I spent a good couple of minutes just looking at this frame, staring into cartoon Anne‘s eyes. What could she have grown up to be? Heartbreaking. 😢
What a lovely GN so far! I really like the choice of excerpts they‘ve included, the variety of different layouts is interesting and the colours are perfect for Anne‘s time. This is my favourite page so far. It‘s highlighted with the quote “Dear Kitty, I hope I will be able to confide everything to you, as I have never been able to confide in anyone, and I hope you will be a great source of comfort and support.” This is one of my favourites.
I love the story of Anne Frank. It‘s my favourite topic to teach about and one of the most engaging for students. I‘ve read Anne‘s diary so many times and it never gets old. 📖 🖊 ✏️
This is a lovely book! I read someone‘s review of it, which said that the graphic novel version portrays Anne‘s personality and life in the annex in a totally different way, showing her youth and vitality. Can‘t wait to read her diary with this in mind.
This sounds like my journaling practice. In fact I sometimes call it my bitch fit journal 😅 So maybe it's good that I didn't reach my journal goal for #TeamFitLit 🙃

I waffled back & forth about attempting the #24in48 #readathon this weekend but finally signed up last night. Slightly under the weather & an exhausting work week so the struggle to stay awake will be real but I'm gonna try. My stack of shorter books + some on my Kindle & a library hold I'll grab tomorrow. Different genres & moods for my inner moody reader. 😉It starts for me at 6:00 PM tonight & I think I'll start with the tagged graphic novel.
5⭐️ When I read Anne Frank‘s diary for the first time, the images that I had in mind were bleak and solemn. It didn‘t help that I had major goosebumps when I visited the house back in 2007. It was a sad story and I had the worst imagination! This graphic novel gives a new perspective - Anne‘s. It‘s different when you put images beside the written words; your imagination is altered - and for me, it‘s for the better 💖
I reread The Diary of a Young Girl several years ago & grabbed this graphic novel adaptation when I saw it on the library new books shelf. The illustrations are beautiful & it fits today's #Amsterdam prompt. So far I have only paged through it but it seems to have been done with thought & care for the original.
Mahalo to @Cinfhen & @BarbaraBB for a great month of musical wanderings & for getting me back into the challenge game. 😘
I read 3 graphic memoirs for #MayMadness Week 3 #graphicnovel challenge. I enjoyed the stories and the illustrations are pretty good!

I was excited to get my hands on a copy of this book but I was also weary because I was unsure if anyone could do an adaptation of her diary justice. With that said, I have to admit that I absolutely loved the adaptation! The graphics were stunning and thoughtful and they did not take away from the importance and depth of Anne‘s diary. I definitely recommend it!. #annefrank #adaptation #memoir #graphicnovel
I LOVED this graphic novel adaptation. To be honest, I still haven‘t been able to read the actual diary… but this graphic adaptation was beautifully illustrated, kept the integrity and serious messages about life and the Holocaust, and (perhaps my favorite aspect) put it in a format almost anyone can digest making it more accessible to audiences.
Virginia Woolf and lots of children's lit (classic & contemporary) pretty much sums up my January reading. Ten books in total and these were my faves!
Thanks for pointing me to the tagged book @dariazeoli. It's beautifully done and makes me want to re-read the original. I'm still waiting on the Beastie Boys book and Becoming.
I haven‘t read Anne Frank‘s original diary in many years, so when I saw this one on Litsy, I knew I had to pick it up. I‘m glad it exists, as it will bring Anne‘s story to a new set of readers; however, as mentioned in the Adapter‘s Note, so much of Anne‘s diary had to be left out. Due to this, I think the graphic adaptation is a fantastic starting point or accompaniment, but it can not replace the original diary.
My third book for #24in48.
Thanks to @Erinreadsthebooks for bringing this one to my attention.
This was so well executed, both in content and illustrations. It‘s been awhile since I read Anne‘s original diary, so I can‘t recall what exactly has been cut, but the same astounding reflections are still present.
I will definitely be buying a copy of this for our shelves.
This cover is fantastic!! 👏🏼🎉😍🤗 I LOVE having graphic novels of classics my kids might be assigned in their classes. Reading doesn't come easy to every student, so I'm thankful that the graphic adaptations that are coming out are 💯
Visitors at my little library 💕🐶🍂
Currently reading Anne Frank's Diary, the graphic novel edition. I love the illustrations.
Hope everyone had a great weekend. Theo helped my niece and nephew carve pumpkins. We agree they are delicious. 🍊🐶🍁 #dogsoflitsy
