The first challenge of Ralph is to get down the stairs at the Mountain View Inn. Ralph slides down the side ramp into prikley bushes. His motorcycle gets stuck with his crash helmet and Ralph lands on the ground.
Next, Ralph rides away on his motorcycle. He find a place called Happy Acres camp and stops to get his favorite meal peanut butter and jelly sandwitches. He meets Sam the dog who does not let Ralph inside Happy Acres Camp. So Ralph has to get by Sam by driving his Motorcycle into the bushes.

I strongly recommend this book. I'm just recently married and plan to buy it in the near future for my hopefully upcoming family!
"Ralph" is a fun adventure story that is filled with humor and suspense. Cleary includes well-written characters and many clever details as Ralph's journey progresses. An important aspect of the novel is Ralph's ability to talk to both other animals (of various species) and certain humans. This fantasy element of the book, similar to the communication in the classic story "Charlotte's Web," is skillfully handled by Cleary.
Ralph is a great character. Despite his personal flaws, his essential courage and resourcefulness make him admirable. I see Ralph as a questing hero in the mold of such classic characters as Homer's Odysseus or Cervantes' Don Quixote. Finally, for an interesting companion text to "Ralph," try Felice Holman's powerful novel "Slake's Limbo."
