Lerner Recalling ‘Angel Girl’

Publishers Weekly reported yesterday that Lerner is recalling Angel Girl, a picture book inspired by the now discredited Halocaust story of Herman and Roma Rosenblat.

The book was published in September. WorldCat shows it is owned by 463 libraries; most large libraries own multiple copies. It received strong prepub reviews from Booklist and School Library Journal and a starred review from Kirkus.

Very few libraries ordered the adult memoir by the Rosenblats, Angel at the Fence. Originally scheduled for February publication, it was cancelled by the publisher, Berkley.
