Mouse Girl in Paris
May 17, 2011 7:45 AM   Subscribe

[Bookfilter]: A friend asks "HELP! About 20 years ago I found a picture book at the library. It was about a little mouse girl who was being raised by a bear in Paris. The mouse had a name like Angelina -- but NOT Angelina Ballerina. Got any idea what it was?" Does this description ring any bells? Thanks!

When it comes to mice, Paris and picture books, the Anatole series by Eve Titus will be mentioned. Unfortunately, this doesn't sound like them.

I've read this book -- or another in that series -- and I have it at home, but I cannot for the life of me remember the title. I'll update tonight if no one gets it by then.
