Book Synopsis



In this imaginative adventure from Newbery Medal-winning author Beverly Cleary, a young mouse named Ralph is thrown into a world of excitement when a boy and his shiny toy motorcycle check in to the Mountain View Inn.

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! And with a pal like Keith always looking out for him, there's nothing this little mouse can't handle.

This timeless classic now features a foreword written by New York Times bestselling author Kate DiCamillo, as well as an exclusive interview with Beverly Cleary herself.

The Mouse and the Motorcycle is perfect for independent reading or for shared reading at home or in a classroom. This fun story is the first of a trilogy, along with Runaway Ralph and Ralph S. Mouse, all inspired by the author's hope to create appealing books for boys and girls--and by the sight of her son playing with toy cars.



From the Back Cover



Ralph the mouse craves excitement, but it seldom comes along to his mousehole in the sleepy Mountain View Inn. That all changes when a boy named Keith comes to the inn with his family. Ralph soon sees Keith playing with a toy motorcycle that's the perfect size for a mouse!

When Ralph sneaks out to try the motorcycle, his mother is sure he'll come to no good. Instead, it's just the beginning--for Ralph's motorcycling adventures and, even better, for an unexpected friendship.

Beverly Cleary's humorous fantasy adventure has delighted millions of fans worldwide. This engaging classic roars to life with brand-new illustrations by Jacqueline Rogers, and one of the most appealing characters you'll ever meet!



Review Quotes




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
