The Diary of Anne Frank

The Diary of Anne Frank

by Anne Frank

The Diary of Anne Frank Friday, August 14, 1942 Summary

  • The van Daans arrive with their cat, Mouschi, on July 13th.
  • Anne describes Peter as a shy, gawky, soft boy of 16. She doesn’t think she can expect much from him in terms of friendship.
  • Mr. van Daan tells the story about how he fooled the Franks’ upstairs neighbors and led them to believe that the Franks had escaped into Switzerland. He told the neighbors not to breathe a word about it to anyone. Of course, the neighbors told everyone, which the Franks find amusing.
