Description

Newbery Medal-winning author Beverly Cleary ramps up the humor and adventure in the second book in the Ralph Mouse series. With a motorcycle to rev and the open road to see, Ralph S. Mouse is itching to run away from his overprotective family! But once he escapes to a summer campground nearby, the horrors of the wild make him doubt his plan. Angry cats, scary watchdogs, and grouchy gophers are only the half of it... But then he befriends Garf, a sad and friendless boy at the camp. Though he wants desperately to be back home with his relatives, Ralph realizes that he may need to help Garf before he can help himself.

Professional reviews

"What a treat! This classic, originally published in 1970, proves its staying power in this entertaining audio edition. The tale continues the adventures of Ralph, that extraordinary mouse star of THE MOUSE AND THE MOTORCYCLE. Tired of his boring life at the Mountain View Inn, frustrated by nagging elders and annoying younger siblings and cousins, he decides to leave in search of "a life of speed and danger and excitement." B. D. Wong tells Ralph's story with energy, enthusiasm, and humor. He creates a believable world in which a mouse can talk to certain open-minded humans and ride off on adventures with a crash helmet on his head and a "pb-pb-b-b-b" sound to energize the motorcycle.
