You're listening to a sample of the Audible audio edition. I agree with her; "Eva's Dream" is definitely her best, but Cody has some great parts, too. This is a book worth reading, because it not only answers any questions the reader of the original book might have, but it contains stories reflecting Anne's outlook on life. I have to admit I was a little disappointed at first since I was expecting the same maturity and reflections I've once experienced in The Diary of a Young Girl. Reviewed in the United Kingdom on July 30, 2019. This is another one of those books that I picked up out of guilt. It often made me wonder what else she would have written if she had the chance.
Tales from the Secret Annex is a collection of miscellaneous prose fiction and non-fiction written by Anne Frank while she was in hiding during the Nazi occupation of The Netherlands.
It was first published in The Netherlands in 1949, then in an expanded edition in 1960. Of course, this is not her diary. This volume contains several essays or stories that also appear in the diary along with a few pieces of fiction and the novel Anne was writing. I, too, had heard of her, back when I was a kid. Anne, in spite of her captivity (hiding from the Nazis), was still an optimist and looked upon humanity as mostly good. Such a charming little girl who felt deeply for the world and revered nature. I absolutely love this book so much because I am such a huge fan of Anne Frank, I have copies of her diaries too and this book serves such an importance for me. Absolutely amazing!
Wish all my students had written as well. The quality of the stories increases immensely as we go from one to the next, proving the old axiom that the only way to improve your writing is to practice. So when we were sorting through a stack of books being lent to us, I saw her famous picture and said, "Oooh, Anne Frank, I should read that." I'm not complaining about its quality, I just had to realise the book was made of tales which Anne wasn't able to revisit; I know it is pretty obvious, but this insight was important for my experience. More than just Anne's diary survived the war; her short stories did, too, and I only discovered them last year. It was first published in The Netherlands in 1949, then in an expanded edition in 1960. You can see her writing developing throughout the book and I wonder if she would have become a great novelist had she survived the war. Anne Frank's Tales from the Secret Annex: A Collection of Her Short Stories, Fables, and Lesser-Known Writings. The kid showed some potential. This book completes the portrait of this remarkable and talented young author. A keen observer of people and nature, a seemingly natural-born storyteller, she leaves the reader, who knows her fate, with a sense of loss over what might have been. Her stories are a reflection of her internal struggles and some fantasies.
Her diary was my favorite to teach in the English class. If you felt that you wish you could have known Anne Frank, then learn more of this amazing young girl and her remarkable insight to life and her superb writing skills. This is a necessary addition to "Anne Frank - The Diary of a Young Girl" because there are references to stories and fablies in this book from which Anne Frank, in her diary, refers. The definitive copy of Anne Frank, the one she wrote before her father Otto got ahold of it is the much better choice. In July 1942, the Frank family went into hiding. Everyone should read this book! Anne Frank was only a teenager when she wrote this so no, it isn't perfect but every tale has a moral behind it. Reviewed in the United Kingdom on February 27, 2013.

Please try again. Anne comes across as a spirited, lively, confident, intelligent and outspoken girl and some of her pieces are more poignant and thoughtful than most adults could write, and it’s so sad that we never got to see how her writing would have progressed as she matured.
