My son and I just finished listening with rapt attention to the audio version of "Ralph S. Mouse," which is wonderfully read by actor William Roberts. Beverly Cleary's third book in her "Mouse and the Motorcycle" series comes to life with Roberts' many voices for characters such as Ralph, the hotel handyman Matt, and Ryan, who tries to save Matt's job by bringing Ralph to school. This audio-book is just over 2 hours long, which is ideal for use as a classroom "read-aloud," or in a car on a family trip, or for just sitting around with the family for a good listen. This tale has a wonderful atmosphere, from the threadbare carpets in the hotel, to the shiny floors at the school, where Ralph dreams of racing his motorcycle at night. This fantasy has so many true-to-life touches it fits many children's dreams of having a pet mouse in your pocket that you can talk to. Ralph has become standard fare in our elementary school library, and this audio-book is just one more fun way to experience this lovable mouse!

Ralph "Smart" Mouse is fed up with living at the country inn with his rowdy mouse cousins who always want to ride his motorcycle. When his pal Ryan Bramble takes him to school, Ralph is delighted with his new home and instant rise to fame. But Ralph doesn't like it one bit when he's in a mouse exhibit and a reporter writes that there are mice throughout the school! What's worse is Ryan's quarrels with his classmate, Brad, who ends up breaking Ralph's motorcycle. Can anything replace his treasured motorcycle? Why can't they all be friends?
As usual the little things, dow to Ralph's learning to say vroom-vroom-vroom, not pb-b-b, pb-b-b (The motorcycle noise) to start his car and moorv (vroom backwards) to back it up, tune readers in to Ralph's experience.

Many children have grown up reading books by Beverly Cleary. They couldn't have better companions as this author's stories are warm, entertaining, and filled with ideas that young readers can wrap their minds around.

Some of our favorites are in the Ramona series, which were named Newbery Honor books and also adapted for television. So great is this author's popularity that her stories appear in 14 languages and her characters often become a part of our language. A case in point is Ralph S. Mouse whose adventures have been shown on ABC-TV.

In this particular story there is no longer peace and quiet at the Mountain View Inn where Ralph lives. His pal, the handyman, is in trouble because there are mice at the Inn, so Ralph thinks he'd best skedaddle.

Fortunately for Ralph he has some young friends, children who understand him. One of these is Ryan who agrees to take Ralph and his motorcycle to school with him. Just think of those polished floors on which Ralph can ride his motorcycle!

Unfortunately, his motorcycle is broken when Ryan and a classmate get into a shoving match. Further, Ralph is put on display. School isn't so great after all. What's a mouse, even one as smart as Ralph to do?

Actor B. D. Wong made his Broadway debut in M. Butterfly. For this performance he received the Tony Award, Drama Desk Award, Outer Critics Circle Award, Clarence Derwent Award, and Theater World Award. He is the only actor to be so honored. He merits another shelf of awards for his narration of Ralph S. Mouse. He brings whimsy and life to his reading. For fans of Ralph, Mr. Wong also reads Mouse and the Motorcycle and Runaway Ralph.

All are highly recommended!

Format: Paperback
...This book is about a mouse and his most pesky relatives. The mouse (Ralph) and his relatives live in a hotel. One day he got so mad he went to school with his friend Ryan to get away from his relatives. The moral of the story is don't bug someone or else they will get very mad. Another message is when you get mad don't try to run away from home. I think it's a very great book because it's adventurous. I recommend this book for people who like exciting moments. I think you should read this book too.

Format: Paperback
Ralph is tired of his relatives trying to make him share his beloved motorcycle. And he's afraid zooming through the mud puddles in the lobby of the inn where he lives has gotten his friend Matt in trouble. So with the help of his human friend Ralph runs away, to Irwin J. Sneed Elementary School, where there are long halls without carpet to ride on and plenty of good things to eat.
Except that the students of Room 5 turns Ralph into a class project and an article in the town paper accuses the school of being infested with mice! And worst of all now Ralph's motorcycle is broken and he has no way to get back home.
Ralph S. Mouse is a classic kid's chapter book. While amusing at times I found Ralph to be pouty and selfish, not exactly a hero. Cleary does mention the reality of mice (being vermin and all), but doesn't quite manage to set Ralph apart, other than his intelligence and his abilities to ride a motorcycle and speak (but only to certain, lonely children).
My son enjoyed being read chapters of Ralph at night, but didn't connect with Ralph's pouting or anger. He was most interested in the beginning and the end, with a lull of interest in the surly middle parts.
Ralph would probably most interest children who are also feeling surly, angry, and like the world is against them. Its strength is in showing kids that they're not alone in those feelings and teaching them to look for ways to solve their problems, because they might not be as bad as it seems.
