The error message sounds like it is rather Python (which lilypond-book
is written in) does not like the file.

And I would not be overly surprised if that was the fault of the file
not actually being written in UTF-8.  Byte 0xab very much sounds like
the character « when written in Latin-1 rather than UTF-8 encoding.
