About the Book

Celebrate HarperCollins’s rich history of iconic children’s books with Harper Classics, a carefully curated line of award-winning novels that feature a beautiful design and bonus material. In adition to the complete book, this edition of The Mouse and the Motorcycle features these fun extras:

   • A Who Said It? game

   • Reader response questions that encourage critical thinking

   • The first two chapters of The Mouse and the Motorcycle with Louis Darling’s original art

In this imaginative adventure from Newbery Medal-winning author and American legend Beverly Cleary, a young mouse named Ralph is thrown into a world of excitement when a boy and his shiny toy motorcycle check into the Mountain View Inn. This edition was illustrated by Jacqueline Rogers.

When the ever-curious Ralph spots Keith’s red toy motorcycle, he vows to ride it. So when Keith leaves the bike unattended in his room one day, Ralph makes his move. But with all this freedom (and speed!) come a lot of obstacles.

Whether dodging a rowdy terrier or keeping his nosy cousins away from his new wheels, Ralph has a lot going on! With a pal like Keith always looking out for him, there’s nothing this little mouse can’t handle.

Critical Praise

One might know that if Beverly Cleary were to invent a mouse, it would be a down-to-earth, boyish mouse with a proclivity for getting into scrapes. A good story! —Chicago Tribune
