I liked the book because it was about a mouse, and I love animals. It wasn't the best book, but I enjoyed when Ryan's mother and Brad's dad got married at the end of the book. They became step-brothers.

Cleary, B. (1982). Ralph S. Mouse. New York: Morrow Junior Books.Adventures continue with Ryan Brambie and his pet mouse, Ralph Smart Mouse. One night, Ralph rides his motorcycle, causing dirt streaks across the floor of the inn. The next morning, Mr. Minch, the inn’s manager, yells at Matt, the desk clerk. Mr. Minch complains that dried mud covers the floor; the inn smells “mousey;” and mouse droppings are everywhere. Ralph believes that he is to blame for getting Matt in trouble. He then decides to leave the inn to prevent Matt from losing his job. Where does Ralph go? He goes to school with Ryan. Thinking that his problems are gone, Ralph discovers that he must run a maze to demonstrate his intelligence.This animal fantasy is convincing. Cleary helps readers to imagine a world where the human world is not always so kind to animals, especially to little, helpless mice. The author gives Ralph a range of emotions. He is prideful in the beginning of the book, and humbled at the end of the story. The framework of the story is consistent. He talks to several humans, all who understand him. The underlying truths of the story are perseverance through adversity and the love and acceptance of a family.Ralph S. Mouse is a perfect introduction to fantasy for children. It could be compared to other animal fantasies, such as the Bunnicula.

This chapter book would be something that boys would like. It is about a boy and a mouse so i think boys could really enjoy it. It also has to do with a mouse riding a motorcycle and i feel like all boys would like to read something like that.

Ralph S. Mouse is a nice break from the other young reader novels that I have been picking up for nursing time with my infant. It isn't all that consuming, and there were a few moments I found that I was at least chuckling internally.I might be a fairly strict parent when it comes to words my small children can use, but I found myself cringing as much as chuckling. While there were certainly no words that I wouldn't say in front of my grandparents, there were uses of other words that I found myself editing. Yes, Cleary grasped how children (and mice?) speak, but in a book attempting to teach lessons, words such as stupid to describe another person seemed out of place.
