Anne Frank Gets Graphic

Recently I mentioned that there’s a new YA novel out about Anne Frank, told from the perspective of Peter, the teenage guy who was in the Annex with her. Now, there’s a graphic novel, too!

The Anne Frank House Museum launched a graphic novel version of the teenage Jewish diarist’s biography Friday, hoping to bring her story and death in a Nazi concentration camp to a wider audience. (Ynet)

I hate to be a spoilsport here, but Anne Frank’s diary doesn’t strike me as a particularly great subject for a graphic novel, considering basically all of the action takes place in a pretty small spot. Also, it seems weird to call it a diary if it’s no longer in diary form. But, I’m really not a graphic novel afficianado, so maybe that’s not a detrimental factor at all. Apparently there’s a Japanese anime version of the diary, so I guess there’s a precedent.
