    One thought on “Runaway Ralph”

    1. Runaway Ralph (Ralph S. Mouse, #2), Beverly ClearyRunaway Ralph is the second in a children's novel trilogy written by Beverly Cleary, first published in 1970.تاریخ نخستین خوانش: نهم ماه ژوئن سال 2002 میلادیعنوان: موش گریزپا؛ نویسنده: بورلی کلییری؛ مترجم: پروین علی پور؛ تهران، موسسه انتشارات مدینه، 1379، در 116 ص، مصور، شابک: 9646910041؛ موضوع: داستانهای ن [...]

    2. Because schools so often assign them, over the last few years I've read and reread Cleary's "Dear Mr. Henshaw" and "Strider" countless times, but never went any farther into her catalog. That wasn't due to my opinion of these books (they are both very good) but because I was too old to be aware of Ms. Cleary as a child, so really wasn't familiar with the breadth of her work. It's a little disconcerting to realize that a 90-year-old author wrote her books too late for you to read in childhood, bu [...]

    3. I probably would have given this three stars had it come to a satisfying conclusion. Instead, it just sort of ends with the promise that everything is going to turn out all right. Aside from that, it's a rather dragging story, with small bursts of action between long sections of basically nothing. The character development, Ralph learning to appreciate his home life, doesn't seem genuine because of this. Still, I think children would enjoy it (and obviously do), so I couldn't give it one star.

    4. Cute little story - I especially liked all of the kid songs - "Greasy Grimy Gopher Guts", etc. I'd forgotten about most of those!

    5. We are huge fans of Ralph the Mouse in this household! This wonderful series of books is charming for all ages and can be read and re-read over and over again, without becoming boring or out-of-date. All readers will love Ralph's adventures and giggle at his overwhelming love and obsession with the motorcycle. This is an excellent read-aloud for young kids, even in first grade. You can continue reading the Ralph books with your child, as he/she gets older -- or they may find the motivation to ju [...]

    6. I would just like to point out that this book is outdated in terms of animal care, such as cedar wood being used for hamsters and mice bedding. Cedar and pine are bad for small animals(birds, too) respiratory systems. Use Aspen or a paper bedding. Just had to say that, because it was bothering me! Also, just FYI, they need bigger cages than you might think! Do your research. :)The story itself, I still really enjoyed.

    8. Personal Response: I liked the book Runaway Ralph. I liked how Ralph had a want for a dangerous life.

    16. I liked the series and loved reading it go my two daughters. They also enjoyed this story about a mouse who can talk and Understand certain children. This was a trait learned by watching television in hotel lobby. Ralph the mouse was given a toy motorcycle which would come to life when Ralph would make an engine revving up sound( pbbbbbaa). since all the other mice in the hotel were related To Ralph they all demanded to ride the motorcycle as well. It got so bad that he never got to ride it hims [...]

    17. I thought that "Runaway Ralph" but Beverly Cleary was a great book. At the beginning it seemed difficult to get into, but as I kept reading it started to get more interesting. The book is about a mouse named Ralph who is very greedy and does not like to share his things. One day his brothers and sisters want to use his motorcycle, but Ralph throws a fit and ends up leaving.

    19. 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.

    20. 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.

    21. 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.

    22. I did not really like this book. It is about a mouse who runs away on his motorcycle to a nearby summer camp. At the camp he is put through many difficult tasks that he has to endure in order to survive. I recommend this book to children in middle schol, because it is easy to read and to understand.

    23. 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.

    24. Continuing with the mouse series. This was more fun for me. Reminded me of camp as a child -- the crafts, counselors, and desire to escape. I do believe I've been a home-body for a long, long time.

    25. 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.

    26. I read this as a kid but I was out walking about the neighborhood with the dog and had this audiobook queued up on Overdrive. It’s read by BD Wong and he’s got such a nice voice that it made sense.In this sequel, Ralph S Mouse who lived at the hotel and got himself a motorcycle from a small boy has run away because he’s being taken advantage of by his cousins. He makes his way to a summer camp and becomes the friend and pet of a boy he is worried about being a sociopath. There’s a funny [...]

    27. 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. [...]

    28. Synopsis: "Ralph, the adventurous mouse, sets out for a children's summer camp on his motorcycle after being teased and chided by his family."My Review: Even though Ralph is a mouse, I think the young readers will really be able to relate to him. I think everyone about the age of the target audience has thought about running away like Ralph did and hopefully before they actually do it they will learn from Ralph's adventures. Ralph finds out that the world really is as scary and danger filled as [...]
