Publisher's Summary

Ralph is not like the other mice at the Mountain View Inn. He is always looking for adventure. It is Ralph's lucky day when a young guest named Keith arrives with a shiny miniature motorcycle. Right away, Ralph knows that the motorcycle is special - and made to be ridden by an adventurous mouse. And once a mouse can ride a motorcycle...almost anything can happen!

Mouse tales: don't miss Ralph's adventures in Ralph S. Mouse (Unabridged) and Runaway Ralph (Unabridged).

    Story
    "Sensitive five year old loves it!"

    We have a hard time finding books for my five year old who does not like anything with conflict or emotional distress between the characters. Beverly Clearly writes well and handles conflict and emotional distress in a way that teaches, but isn't scary. Everyone in the family enjoyed this listen....the age ranges of the kids span 10 years, so finding a book that everyone enjoys can be difficult. I would recommend this book for anyone with kids. It probably helps that I remember reading and enjoying this book as a child.

    Story
    "A Childhood Favorite"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this for any old fans of the book, and any youg reader looking to try something new. The fantastic story of Ralph and his adventurs are performed well and are still able to bring a smile to my face after many years.


    What other book might you compare The Mouse and the Motorcycle to and why?

    As a childhood reader of all Cleary books, this story has made me want to revisit all of her old works.


    Have you listened to any of B. D. Wong’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was the first BD Wong performance I've heard, outside of his acting on things like SVU and The Ref. It took a second to place him, and he wasn't who I would have expected, but he did a remarkable job.


    Any additional comments?

    My kids are three and five, and aren't generally captivated by lengthy stories, but I plan to play this on our next road trip, when they do seem to last a bit longer with their attention span. Books and audible in general have helped us as a family to avoid DVD players and video games in the car, which is something that I'm quite proud of.

    "My Son LOVES to Listen to this!!!"
    Have you listened to any of B. D. Wong’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    My son is 5 and has already listened to this twice. He loves it and I love to see him listening to it so intently and laughing or gasping as he follows the story.

    The narration of this story is so well done. Each character comes alive in the recording. Compelling.

    "Dramatic Reading"

    BD Wong is a gifted story teller. He doesn't just read, he acts. This dramatic reading includes appropriate voices and sound effects that makes the presentation enjoyable for the entire family in a car ride, or during family reading night.
