So, why does a publisher which doesn’t normally deal in graphic novels / comics decide to put out a book like this?
1) It’s a way to re-publish existing material. This is especially true for The Anne Frank Center whose mission it is to perpetuate her story.
2) They assume – mostly incorrectly – that graphic novels are currently trendy.
3) They assume that kids are too slow / callous to appreciate a prose presentation of the same material.
