Beverly Cleary’s The Mouse and the Motorcycle is an adventurous children’s story about an extraordinary mouse, Ralph, and his friend, a boy named Keith. Ralph is an adventure-seeking mouse who lives with his family in a hotel, and his love of risky contingencies war with his family’s constant concern of being discovered by the humans working and staying at the hotel. However, in a chance encounter, Ralph encounters Keith while the boy and his family are staying at the hotel. Keith discovers that his toy motorcycle is missing, only to find the tiny automobile lost in a trashcan, alongside a charming mouse. Ralph and Keith become unlikely friends, as the young boy teaches Ralph how to ride the toy motorcycle, thus beginning a variety of memorable adventures. Cleary’s novel is a fun escapade, boasting a lovely read-aloud quality (as children will giggle at the “p-b-b-b-b-b” start up of the toy engine), while also remaining a loving demonstration of the lengths one will go to for friends. The Mouse and the Motorcycle can be enjoyed by children of all ages, as it is an exciting, imaginative, and adventurous tale that encapsulates the importance of friendship, and being sensitive and caring towards those that may seem different or unusual.
