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.

A Kid's Review on April 11, 2002
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.

I enjoyed these books when I was a child. It came in quite handy when my nephew was a little boy and hated reading. I believe the key to creating a love of reading is to give them a subject they will enjoy. He loved dirtbikes. So Ralph S. Mouse it would be. He read all three of the series. Now that he has a baby boy, I thought I better buy them in hardback to make sure I will have copies to last another generation.

Great book! I read this series as a child and recently started reading this series with my son recently. We have blown through the books. He adores them and is always begging to read more chapters.
There are so difficult words for small children and for children in our modern world. My 6 year old son frequently stop me and asks what some of the words mean. It is great for building up his vocabulary though.

This series by Beverly Cleary was the first "chapter" books for my grandson at age 3 - 4. We read them over and over. He loved the characters. I have just purchased a new set for my other grandson who is 4 1/2. I hope he enjoys them as much as his cousin did.

Hooray! Our freewheeling motorcyclist mouse pal is back--just as spunky and determined to continue his not-so-secret lifestyle as a Night Rider at the Mountain View Inn. No reforms for our Ralph! This time he has a new boy to train to serve as his pitcrew/accomplice in dare-devil, hotwheel antics.
Family problems plus a guilty conscience result in Ralph's taking a vacation from the Inn, spending a week at Ryan's school. When the clever teacher, Miss K. discovers Ralph in her classroom--far from screaming or fainting-- she improvises a unit on MICE! Her pupils must prepare scientific projects and literary reports. But Ralph is Not honored by all this sudden notoriety and dubious fame; he prefers the comforting anonymity of Ryan's pocket or an old boot.
The class also learns a lesson in coping with shoddy journalism and even Ralph discovers a non-violent way to deal with rowdies. But disaster befalls Keith's original gift to the young mouse; will poor Ralph ever ride his beloved motorcyle again? A cute mouse tale which will amuse readers who are young at heart.
