"Look, Ryan," he said. "I'm in trouble and I don't have time to tell you about it. Just take me and my motorcycle with you, and don't ask questions."

"To school?" Ryan was surprised.

Ralph's pesky cousins are wrecking his motorcycle, and his janitor friend, Matt, is in trouble because there seem to be mice in the hotel. All in all things are not going well at the Mountain View Inn. So Ralph persuades his young pal Ryan to take him to school. Ralph is an instant hit with Ryan's classmates. But he doesn't like being forced to run through a maze or the threat of an exterminator coming to the school. Worst of all, Ryan gets into a fight with a classmate, and Ralph's precious motorcycle is broken. Is Ralph S. Mouse smart enough to steer this sad situation to a happy ending?

    Ralph,a small,smart mouse living in a hotel with his big family.They try to stay out of sight.Ralph decides he needs to leave the hotel. Riding his small motorcycle around just isn't safe anymore,especially when his cousins are constantly begging to ride it. Ryan, a small boy that lives in the hotel with his single mother is one of the few people that can hear and understand Ralph when he talks. Ralph one day gets Ryan to take him to school so he can start a new life there, but finds out it's not a place for a mouse like him. The overwhelming life of a classroom isn't as thrilling to Ralph, especially when his motorcycle gets broken by one of the kids. Ralph decides that going home to the hotel and using what he learned in the classroom is something he can deal with and enjoy. Even better Ryan gets a friend and Ralph gets a new,cool sports car, and learns to share it with his family. Life at the hotel isn't so bad after all. Ralph realized that you can't always get what you want but you have to be happy with what you have, and what you can't ever get rid of, your family. This book is a cute little novel that most kids my age would enjoy because it is a fun and adventurous book. I think that all kids around my age could read this book and like it just as much as I did. I do not recommend it to adults because it is not that challenging of a read, and it is too childish, unless you're an adult who likes childish. This book is part of a series so if you love it, there is more to enjoy.

        I don't really like mouse, but I think in this book, the mouse is really good. He was smart, and also can speak. I think Ralph is very helpful, the mouse that who can talk with the children. I was wondered why only children can understand what Ralph is saying. I thought that I want to have some animal that really smart. I also always thinking about if I could talk with my dog. I really want to talk with my dog even once in my life. I want to know what is he thinking about, about everything. If I could talk with my dog, I could ask a lot of thing. This book keep making me to think recall something.
