There are all kinds of side adventures along the way, including an accident that breaks Ralph's Motorcycle! Oh No! Now what will the famous mouse do?? Very cute little book for kids who like little adventures of talking animals. "

    " Hooray for another fiction book that my 8-year-old boy liked well enough to read chapters on his own. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa Clark | 2/12/2014

    " I thought this was a cute book. I'm glad my Jenny and my girlfriend recommended it to me. I was really disappointed after reading The Tale of Despereaux it was good to read a cute story about a mouse. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth Anne | 2/9/2014

    " The book was probably the weakest of the three, but the ending was very sweet. A great series with memorable characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ashley | 2/1/2014

    " Very fun book to read with your kids. I read it to my 2 year old son and he really enjoyed the story about silly Ralph S. Mouse. We look forward to borrowing other books about Ralph from the library and I've added the series of 3 books to his wish list for Christmas and birthday. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Keely | 1/29/2014

    " I listened to the audio-book, and the narrator made Ralph sound like a thug from Brooklyn...which is not what I imagined him to sound like. I probably would have liked it better if I would have read it myself. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tiffany | 1/29/2014

    " Ellie: this book was great. My favorite character was Ralph because he got a car. I didn't like brad because he was mean. The best part of the book was when Ryan got Brad for his brother. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Suzi | 1/20/2014

    " I read the series to my youngest. Together we enjoyed Ralph's adventures. This book didn't disappoint. Ralph has a need for adventure and the desire to drive fast vehicles/motorcycles. In this book he "goes to school" with the boy who lives in his hotel. He learns many things and also teaches the students a few things. Beverly Cleary is always a great read with the kids. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carolyn | 1/19/2014

    " My boys enjoyed this. Ralph is a spunky character and had us laughing throughout the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 1/12/2014

    " Read out loud to the children. Decent story but not especially memorable or gripping. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 1/12/2014

    " Finally finished this with the kids - I think it was their least favorite of the three (until the end, anyway) because the main character, Ryan, wan't very likeable. Anyway, cute trilogy by Cleary, who's written such great kids' classics. On to Ramona! :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Swankivy | 11/26/2013

    " I thought Ralph was an interesting character, but overall I didn't relate to him as much as when Ms. Cleary writes realistic fiction. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 jacky | 11/25/2013

    " Not as good as the others. There just wasn't as much fun in this book. I felt it was a rehash of the second book where Ralph is stuck somewhere again without his motorcycle. I did like the ending though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amber Pangburn | 10/26/2013

    " This is about a mouse who lived in the school and he had a motorcycle. I would use this book in the classroom to help the studnets understand that there is people that will help other people when there is different parts. I would also explain how to help people. "

    " It seems that old lovable mouse Ralph has got himself a new set of wheels and is bound to cause some chaos. The problem is that it takes him some time to learn how to ride but when he does watch out. Wanna find out what happens? Then read the book if the answer is yes. "

    " I liked this book because it was different and it was a cute story. If anyone knows of the movie Runaway Ralph, I think the movie is a sequel to this book. This book was a bit slow at first, but it really started to pick up the pace and it kept my attention. "

About the Author
Author Beverly Cleary

Beverly Cleary was born in McMinnville, Oregon, and until she was old enough to attend school she lived on a farm in Yamhill, a town so small it had no library. Her mother arranged to have books sent to their tiny town from the state library and acted as a librarian in a room over a bank. It was there that Mrs. Cleary learned to love books. Generations of children have grown up with Ramona Quimby, Henry Huggins, Ralph Mouse, and all of their friends, families, and assorted pets. Cleary continues to capture the hearts and imaginations of children of all ages throughout the world.
