"In the book RUNAWAY RALPH, a mouse named Ralph still adored his motorcycle, but he noticed several problems with it. For example, it was he who found the motorcycle, it was he who took the risk of retrieving the motorcycle down from the table, and it was he who even fell into a trash can just to bring the motorcycle down, but his family also got to use it too. He was very disturbed with this schedule until he thought up of a plan. If he were to run away, no one in his family would even find him. After he somehow got himself and his motorcycle down the steps of his apartment, he took the road and fled to the only other place that he knew the way to, which turned out to be a camp. From there, he trespassed a watchdog, lost his motorcycle, met a hamster, and became a target for a cat named Catso. Finally, he found his motorcycle in the hands of the person who saved him from Catso's first attempt to attack him. After Ralph got his motorcycle back (I won't tell how), that person brought Ralph back to his proper place.

I liked how Ralph stood up and got his motorcycle back. The really interesting part about that is that he actually talked English... a language that most mice can't speak. His courage and brevity also led to huge accomplishments.

At the beginning, he was so annoyed by his family that he escaped, but as time went by, he got homesick. Without his family and friends, there would be lots of difficulties in survival and and education, so it's best to start out easy with them helping.

" Who cannot like a little mouse running around on his motorcycle?! But, there is still one part that I do not like about this book. Ralph stays in a cage the entire book. " said.

" I wanted a pet mouse for so long after reading this book. " said.

" I also didn't read this one during my childhood. It was an enjoyable, fast read. The mouse on the motorcycle was surprisingly easy to identify with. His terrors, joys, hopes, dreams, problem-solving skills, and empathy all seemed natural and of the right intensity to make the plot roll along. " said.

" The very first book I checked out from my elementary school library/media center. We own most of the Ralph S. Mouse series and they've been read many dozens of times to and by my kids. They're feeling a bit abandoned now, I think it's time to see if my local library or Riley Hospital for Children would like them. " said.

" As my librarian said it would be, this one is not as good as the first one. I enjoyed reading it out loud to William at bed times, but I didn't enjoy it as much at the first one in most ways. The plot wasn't as interesting to me, Ralph's character didn't seem as strong or to grow, the other characters weren't as interesting. It is still worth the time to read, but not if you are only going to read one from the series. " said.

" I remember reading Ralph S. Mouse years ago in elementary school, so it was interesting to pick this one up so many years later and be able to jump right in. Ralph goes on an adventure to camp this time because he is bores of his life in the hotel. He heads out on his trusty motorcycle and ends up running into a nosy dog and a sneaky cat. He joins forces with a grumpy hamster and learns that sometimes home is better than the new adventures. " said.

"I enjoyed reading this book by Beverly Cleary. This is the second book to the three book series. Ralph is sick of living at the hotel and having to share his motorcycle with his family. What does Ralph do? He decides to run away on his motorcycle to where ever it takes him. Ralph ends up at a summer camp a few miles away from the hotel. He has all sorts of troubles and conflicts, like losing his motorcycle and getting trapped by a human. He becomes friends with the human and asks him if he can take Ralph back to the hotel where he belongs. I would recommend this book to younger kids in elementart or middle school because it is easy to read and has childish humor." said.
