Mouse Girl in Paris

[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!

Is falling in love before going away a good idea?

I have met a girl that I really like but I am going abroad for a half a year in three months. I don't know if I should let myself allow falling in love with her or just distance myself to her emotionally. Also the history seems to be repeating itself… [more inside]

Identify a science fiction/fantasy novel from the 1980s, possibly YA, where they lived in the trees and where talk of killing others was taboo?

Can you identify this book? I read it in the mid-1980s. It may or may not have been a YA (Young Adult) title. The protagonist was a young girl, and her society lived peacefully up in the trees. She was interested in seeing the world down on the surface. There may have been another society down there. At one point she lost her temper with someone (a pet?) and blurted out something like "I would like to dead you!" at which her family was shocked and horrified at her violent thoughts. I particularly remember being struck by that part, that she understood the concept of killing but didn't know the verb. [more inside]

I forgot the Title of this Fantasy Novel.

I read a book about a young, girl wizard over 10 years ago and can't remember the name. It starts off with an old wizard who walks into a town where the 10th son of the 10th son of the 10th son was just born, and he transfers upon the baby all of his wizarding power. But the baby isn't a son, it's actually a daughter and this sets the scene for the rest of the book when the girl grows up to become the only female wizard, which rubs a lot of the wizarding community the wrong way.

Third wheel woes...

This girl (20's) and myself (guy in my 20's) have been planning this trip for her to come visit me for some time. I go to an east coast graduate school and she goes to my old college in the Midwest. She wants to check out the school for graduate potential and we've been pretty close friends for a few years (we were in the same major, took many classes together, hung out frequently). The plan was for her to come here and sleep at my place. [more inside]

Girl next door and marriage viability.

Several years ago I read a small stack of relationship books. I swear it was in Maggie Scarf's Intimate Partners, but having re-read that one cover to cover looking for the precise blip it is not in that one. Do you know of any anthropology or psychology or sociology academic study which (perhaps famously and/or authoritatively) concludes: the best prediction of relationship success is you grew up in the same (or very similar) neighborhoods? Google pulls up a million results but not the one I am looking for. [more inside]

From where this story of male desire ?

Need some help trying to find the source of this little quote. My memory is fading but I think it was from a stand-up show: "When I was a young man I wanted a girlfriend with big breasts. As I grew older I wanted an intellectual girl. In my thirties I wanted a girl to be the mother of my children. Now as an old man, I want a girl with big breasts." or something like that. Thanks Everyone !

Are there any alternatives to the (Boy|Girl) Scouts that are secular in nature?

I have a son, almost 12, and a daughter, 9, and have been thinking about getting them involved in more outdoor activities. They're home-schooled, so they do get the opportunity to get out and play in the yard and with a few other kids in the neighborhood, but I'd like them to be introduced to a wider range of activities that outdoors-type groups like the scouts might provide (and not being an outdoorsy-type myself, might be able to better instruct in), but I'm put off by both the nationalistic and religious overtones that seem to pervade the Scout oaths. I'd prefer something with more of a global/wildlife focus. [more inside]
