Book Overview

Newbery Medal-winning author Beverly Cleary ramps up the humor and adventure in the second book in the Ralph S. Mouse trilogy.

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.

Runaway Ralph is perfect for independent reading or for shared reading at home or in a classroom. This fun story is the second of a trilogy, along with The Mouse and the Motorcycle and Ralph S. Mouse, all inspired by the author's hope to create appealing books for boys and girls--and by the sight of her son playing with toy cars.

   On to the third generation!
Ralph Mouse read the books as a child and loved them. My nephew loved reading as an adult, but hated motorbikes. I bought them for him and he read them. He now has a baby that turned 1. His mother, a teacher, loves to read to him. So I bought some board books for the baby to chew and the Ralph Mouse series in hardcover. I loved the idea that the hardcover would last for him to pass to the next generation. When Ralph Mouse opened the gift, she was thrilled with the books because my nephew had told her about reading them as a child. He remembered so! Three generations of growing up on Ralph Mouse. Beverly Cleary, thank you.
   Beverly Cleary does it again!
Thank goodness, there is another book after this! They adored it absolutely. And I had already known that this was a 3 - part series because I read it myself when I was in the elementary school. They were ecstatic to find out that there was another! We finished Runaway Ralph tonight & were all horrified when I said The End ''. However, I reassured them that there was one more book to go and were quickly relieved. ) I do miss the twists and turns of excitement around every corner at the Mountain View Inn, but a kid's camp for the setting of this book has a whole new set of adventures 'close calls for little Ralph. My 9, 6 '3 'Half Year Old Interest was held captive the entire time, just like the first book, and we look forward to starting the 3rd book tomorrow to see just what Ralph S. Mouse has in store for us!
   Ralph gets more than he bargained for on this adventure!
He is annoyed with his younger siblings. What is a young mouse doing with a motorcycle? Why not take off on an adventure of the open road? Ralph heads with a Pb--pb--p--p--p toward Happy Acres camp to seek the company of boys his age and PBJ sandwiches. But the adventure is not what he expected. He does not like the odors of gasoline or the dust and wind that whips his face and when he finally arrives at the camp, he finds that things are not quite what he anticipates. There is a cat to avoid, a problem child who sings songs about helpingless animals and is caught in a cage. How will Ralph get back to safety, will anyone find the motorcycle hidden in the shrubbery? And how will he ever get up the hill he came down on? Anybody who enjoys adventure or has ever run away from home will love the excitement of embarking on this adventure with Ralph.

Runaway Ralph Hi I'm Gray Have you ever read a book with a mouse that rides a motorcycle and a helmet that's a pingpong ball we 'll if you haven 't, his name is Ralph. This book is really good because the author did a really good job of making me want to read more of the book because in the middle of the book there is a really good part because he finds a book to find out. If you're reading this book in the 3rd grade, read it.

   Loved it
When I was little, I read this book. I still remember how much I loved that story, the series of stories. At the time, I was 7, or 8. It was very wrapped in the book. I would relate the story to a childhood friend as my own story with my own embellishments. When i remember that i remember how, like most children, i was just silly. I recommend it as a reading for any young reader!

   excellent series
It is a fun, endearing story. Beverly Cleary had really a gift. These books have aged well and are rather timeless.
   Nice but wrong cover
While the book is in pristine condition, it was obviously the wrong cover. I wanted the cover to match, as we are pairing the book with the other 2 written for a set.
   Different cover
Upset that a different cover is shown than received. I ordered all three from this series and wanted them to be consistent. Will return.
