The Mouse and the Motorcycle (Ralph Mouse Book 1) Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
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.

I love everything about this story. My favorite part is when the mouse rides the motorcycle and when the boy talks to the mouse. I wish I could talk to a mouse too!
Most had never read it. I have a broad range of students this year. The storyline hooked my reluctant readers and my ELL/ESL/CLD students. There was enough drama for my above-level readers.
Each day, the students wanted to continue reading to find out what would happen next. The reading level was low enough that my reluctant readers did not become discouraged.
I enjoyed listening to the conversations students had about the characters and the story. Most went on to read the next book in the series. I found a segment in our Reading rext that detailed mice, so the kids were excited to learn more.
Very happy I picked this for my book study this year.
I found the 1980's movie through Prime, and the kids really liked it. Very '80's cheesy, but wholesome, innocent, and cute.
While the story has dated references, my daughter still loves it and can't get enough.
I enjoyed this story. It was fun and imaginative. I liked how Ralph was independent but thoughtful of his family. When he gets into trouble he knows when to admit it and tries to find ways that will undo the hardship on his family. I liked the courage he shows when Kevin needs help.
I enjoy Ms. Cleary's books. I plan to enjoy more of them no matter what my age.
