This edition was illustrated by Jacqueline Rogers.When the ever-curious Ralph spots Keith's red toy motorcycle, he vows to ride it. So when Keith leaves the bike unattended in his room one day, Ralph makes his move. But with all this freedom (and speed!) come a lot of obstacles.Whether dodging a rowdy terrier or keeping his nosy cousins away from his new wheels, Ralph has a lot going on! With a pal like Keith always looking out for him, there's nothing this little mouse can't handle.

One might know that if Beverly Cleary were to invent a mouse, it would be a down-to-earth, boyish mouse with a proclivity for getting into scrapes. A good story!--Chicago Tribune

    Ok, it's a story I read a long time ago but it's still a good one. It's funny and pacy with lots of opportunities for discussion. Good quality used copy.

  • By Grant L Millar on 17 November 2003

    When I was an 8 year old at the end of the seventies I had a brilliant teacher who was passionate about story telling. She used to put a great deal of colour & drama into her stories and of all of the books she read us that year, this was the most fun.Every child imbues their toys with life and vitality through imagination and dreams, and it's a familiar device in childrens' fiction. What's so memorable about this book's use of this concept, however, is it's huge sense of fun.The central themes are not overdone for the younger listener/reader: being small and wondrous of your surroundings is certainly a subject that all children will find resonant. More than this though, it's the exhiliration of the story, the joy of speed and adventure, and the unshakeable central friendship of the boy and the mouse that ensures this book is one that will be cared about.Learning to overcome your fears and thriving on friendship is a great subject for discussion as a family.This book is a blast- particulalrly as a read-aloud. Even for the short attention span: there are numerous cliff-hangers to keep kids holding on for the next instalment.Give it a whirl.

    This was a gift and arrived to the recipient swiftly. She was very appreciative as she particularly wanted a book about a mouse's adventures !

  • By Happy Buyer on 24 January 2017

    My 9 year old really loved this book. He is requesting more books by the same author, it's a shame she only wrote a few.
