Reading currently with my 5 yr old son. We're both enjoying it a lot! ************************************************************************

This was a sweet adventure story of a mouse, a motorcycle, and various adventures. I enjoyed the somewhat dated, let's call it vintage, language and the fact that it was tame enough for my kindergartner. He was very interested in the story and I was also. We're planning to read the follow up soon.

Tema says, "it was good and I would give it a 5. When he found the pill, when he got to keep the motorcycle, that's what was good about it."

Sara My daughter is really getting into Cleary, especially her Ramona books.

Callie Yeah, I sorta forced this onto my son, in that I didn't give him a choice of what we'd read. But he's really getting into the story and I'm enjoying it too. I'm surprised how much I remember considering I read it about 23 years ago!
