The Mouse and the Motorcycle

Book 1, Ralph Mouse

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


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

Customer Reviews

Best book I have ever read.

Like I said in the title, this is the best book I have ever read. About four years ago, when I was 9, I started to read this book and couldn't put it down. I went out and bought it and this is the book I read the most out of all the books I own. If you love fun books that are great for children, this is the book for you

Captivating Story

Beverly Cleary really knows how to make a story out of seemingly common childhood experiences. She does a great job of helping the reader see the world through a boy's eyes and an even better job of personifying the animals of the boy's affection.

I am 46 years old & I never forgot about reading this in elementary school! It was my favorite & I will tell my grandchildren to read it!
