Ralph S. Mouse cannot imagine living his whole life at the old Mountain View Inn. Sure, it's cozy and his family is there, but there's a great big world beyond the walls where the mice live. And Ralph is determined to see it.

It's just another day at the inn—until young Keith checks in with his family. Ralph can't wait to nibble on the crumbs the boy is sure to drop—until he sees something even better! Keith has brought along some interesting toys, including a miniature motorcycle that looks to be the perfect size for a certain adventure-loving little mouse!

About the Author

Beverly Cleary is the Newbery Medal–winning author of more than 30 books for children. When she was a young girl, Ms. Cleary lived in a town so small it had no library. Perhaps it was this lack of books on hand that led the author to write the kinds of books (and create the many characters) she wished she could have encountered as child. Beverly Cleary's books are full of charming adventure and are beloved for their warmth, wit, and welcoming feel.
