A New York Times Bestseller
Meltzer extolls Jewish values while gently addressing the escalating persecution of Jews and the horrors of the Holocaust, acknowledging the terror but framing Frank's story as one of resilience and hope . . . This undeniably somber volume is appropriately lightened by Eliopoulos' disarming cartoons, which utilize large panels, speech bubbles, and simple yet expressive character designs. --Booklist, starred review
