This story is about a mouse and his motorcycle. At the beginning of the story it was winter and all Ralph's relatives were moving in because Ralph lived in a warm, safe inn with his mother. Ralph was riding his motorcycle, and his little relatives started to whine because Ralph had a motorcycle and they did not. Ralph started to be selfish about sharing the motorcycle and got in trouble. The next morning a boy named Ryan took Ralph to school. Ralph was planning to stay at school until his relatives moved upstairs out of his way; it didn't work.

I liked this book because it was really funny. Ryan reminds me of my best friend Cole because he always keeps a deal. Matt reminds me of my dad because he is always making sure everything is clean. My favorite character was Ralph. I liked the way he talked about his motorcycle and he rode the motorcycle. My favorite character was Ralph. I liked the way he talked about his motorcycle and road the motorcycle. My favorite part was when Ralph went to school and ran the maze. It was funny!

I would recommend this book for people that like to read because it is very funny. I think second graders would like it because it is really fun to read. I think other readers would like the part when Ralph rides his motorcycle because he does tricks on it and it makes you laugh.
