I have a memory of lying in my bed, listening to my mother read The Mouse and the Motorcycle. We were at the end of chapter 6, with the terrible vacuum cleaner that was headed towards Ralph, the mouse. I was so caught up in the story I felt it was an awful thing my mother did by making me go to sleep, forcing me to wait until the following night to learn of Ralph's fate.

Cleary is a beloved author for a reason. Her stories are imaginative and fun. This one, in particular, has exciting adventure as well. Ralph, a daring mouse, becomes friends with a human boy and learns (as if by magic) to ride his toy motorcycle. The tag line on my 1965 version of the book reads: "Speed, fun -- and daredevil escapades!"
