From Booklist: Reviewed with Kem Knapp Sawyer's Anne Frank.
Gr. 5-10. Most of the famous people in the new DK Biography series have been well covered in books, films, and plays, and their autobiographies have remained international best-sellers. That said, these attractive books are, nonetheless, highly readable, worthwhile overviews for young people that introduce both personal and wider background and historical issues. For Anne Frank, Sawyer drew extensively on several sources, including the Diary in its various versions and accounts by Anne's father and their rescuer Miep Gies. Her clear history makes this a good place to start research. Less has been written about Keller, so many readers will find Garrett's book a fascinating first look at the amazing woman, blind and deaf since childhood, who, helped by a devoted teacher, learned to read and speak and traveled the world as an inspiring public speaker and political activist. The publisher's familiar illustration-rich page design works well in the smaller format of this series, and the smooth narratives are broken up on every page with boxed facts and quotes as well as well-chosen, small color photos. For other titles in the series, see the Series Roundup in this issue. Hazel Rochman
