48 + 16 pp, HB + Slipcase Images throughout 13,500 words £14.99

2020 marks the 75th anniversary of Anne Frank’s death in February and the end of the Holocaust in May. International Holocaust Remembrance Day is 27th January – this is the ideal time to introduce Anne to a new generation. This beautiful slipcase format features a hardback book and a folder of additional content, including meaningful facsimilie documents that bring life to Anne’s years in hiding. Additional fill-in content will inspire readers to start their own diary and find their voice. Look out for the magnifying-glass icon throughout the book that will tell you when to find further details in the red-and-whitechecked folder. Produced in association with the Anne Frank House, which received over 1.2 million visitors in 2018. On the 75th anniversary of the end of the Holocaust, discover the inspirational biography of Anne Frank – the girl who refused to give up hope, even in the darkest of times... In 1942, Anne Frank bought a red-and-white-checked diary for her thirteenth birthday. Nearly one month later Anne and her family went into hiding to escape the persecution of the Nazis, and so the diary of her life in hiding began. In this book, children can learn all about what life was like in the secret Annex, set to the background of tense radio news reports and constant fear of the ongoing war, as well as reading about Anne’s thoughts, hopes and dreams of a better future. Packaged in a beautiful slipcase and featuring a red-and-whitechecked folder of additional content to explore and personalise, readers can discover more about Anne, the Holocaust, and be inspired to keep their own diary. Kay Woodward has written over 80 children’s books, including What Would She Do? and the Skate School series.
