    "Great series for kids!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I loved this as a kid but love the fact that my daughter and I listen to this every day.


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

    B. D. Wong has great sounds and voices for the characters.

    "So glad I found this!"
    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    While I found the narrator to be less than exquisite, I do believe he does an adequate job.


    Any additional comments?

    I grew up reading the adventures of Ralph and his motorcycle and I will never forget how much I love these books. I do enjoy Ramona and her antics, but something about Ralph and his spirit has stuck with me for over 18 years. I will always recommend this collection.

    Story
    "Stick with Ramona and Henry"
    What disappointed you about The Ralph S. Mouse Audio Collection?

    My son loved the Henry Huggins and Ramona stories, and since he is still very young I was hoping the Mouse and His Motorcycle stories would be even more age appropriate. But these stories lack the charm of those other Beverly Cleary books. The worst thing about them is how much bickering and negativity you hear from the kids and even the mouse. There's a lot of complaints about people and things being "stupid" or "boring." The characters are constantly whining and complaining. The narration doesn't help, as all the characters sound essentially the same, and the female characters sound like the actor is mocking them. By the third book, my son was asking me to turn it off.


    Would you be willing to try another one of B.D. Wong’s performances?

    No. All the voices sound alike, and the female voices are particularly bad.

    "Fun!"
    Where does The Ralph S. Mouse Audio Collection rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The Ralph S. Mouse Audio Collection is a great fun collection. It ranks with Chitty Chitty Bang Bang for quality amongst children's books.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Of course my favorite character was Ralph the mouse. His mood and temper was affected by circumstances, but he was able to learn. And I love the imagination that both the author and the mouse were able to play.


    Which character – as performed by B.D. Wong – was your favorite?

    He did extremely well with all characters. O


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    My only complaint is that the books were played out of order. _Runaway Ralph_ should have been BEFORE _Ralph S. Mouse_. The motorcycle, after all, is destroyed in _Ralph S. Mouse_, but it's a vital part of _Runaway Ralph_.

    "Great stories from my childhood!"

    I really enjoyed listening to these stories again. The reason I only gave 3 stars is because I didn't care for the narrator's voice in the second book.

    "Ralph Rocks!"

    Here is my seven-year-old daughter's review:

    I like it a lot! I listen to it every night, even though I fall asleep before the end. I think Ralph is cool because he is the only mouse with a motorcycle. I think B.D. Wong does a great job. He sounds very sophisticated, and I like sophisticated readers. Beverly Cleary writes a lot of great books, and you get three of them in one set. I'm astounded.

    Story
    "The Mouse Collection --"
    If you could sum up The Ralph S. Mouse Audio Collection in three words, what would they be?

    Fun for boys!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Ralph S. Mouse Audio Collection?

    Ralph making the ultimate sacrifice for his human friend.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of B.D. Wong?

    Edward Herrman. Mr Wong did a terrible job on the voices of the female characters -- they all, human and mouse, sounded elderly and cranky. Awful!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I started reading these stories when my son was a little boy and they are still charming and funny.
