HarperCollins is challenging the methodology behind the newest advisory from the Rainforest Action Network that some of its children’s books contain paper harvested from vulnerable Indonesian rainforests. According to RAN, a test conducted in November of seven HC titles found three with “significant” quantities of acacia fiber that is mainly sourced from Indonesian rainforest and trace amounts in “several” others. At least one of those books, Fancy Nancy’s Splendiferous Christmas, was printed before February 2012 when, according to HC, they began sourcing paper from certified mills.
