Rose Blanche was not originally an American book, which becomes obvious almost immediately. The story isn't rosy or happy; it is about a German girl growing up in Nazi Germany. She discovers a concentration camp and brings food to the prisoners there. The art is beautiful and the story is excellent, but it certainly isn't the kind of thing American children are used to reading or hearing.
