"He koha na Anne Frank ki te ao, ki nga uri whakaheke hei panui ma ratou i te reo taketake o Aotearoa - te reo Maori. Kei te moemiti au ki a Te Haumihiata, nana i whakamaori, ki te kaita ano hoki i hua ai te pukapuka nei" - Ngahiwi Apanui, Tumuaki / Chief Executive, Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Maori / Maori Language Commission.
"This book is a gift from Anne Frank to the world and to coming generations of New Zealanders to read it in te reo Maori. I commend Te Haumihiata for the beautiful translation and the publishers who have made this possible."
