    The Key of Life~ 9

    This will have some kissing for those who wanted it in this chapter. ***** Lanie was not back from St. Mungo's. Michael paced around the house. "Damn, Michael, take a break!" Shaun rolled his eyes. Yet something in his eyes told him that he was worried. Just then Lilly pulled on Shaun's arm. She took him upstairs. Lilly closed the door. Michael, a curious evesdropper, followed them and hid behind a trunk. "I know your worried." She grinned. "Heck, take your mind off it!" Shaun grinned. Lilly scooted closer and they kissed deeply. Michael covered his eyes and snuck out the door. Crack. Lanie had Apparated downstairs. Michael thundered down the stairs and hugged her before yowling, "LANIE'S BACK! SHE'S HERE!" He heard Lilly and Shaun thunder downstairs. Shaun ran over to hug his sister. "You're ok!" Lilly hugged her as well, grinning. "I guess your, uhh, episode was good luck." Michael teased. Shaun turned bright red and Lilly gave him a furious look. Michael grinned. Regus had almost flown off the stairs as he hugged her as well. "Yes. I'm okay!" ***** Michael opened the door and flopped down on Lanie's bed. Lanie spun around. "Yes?" She asked. "Oh, just wanted to come up here. I fancy you and all." Lanie's smile grew wide. She sat down next to him. They kissed deeply and finished just as Shaun basically broke the door down shouting, "ITS MUM! MUM AND DAD! OH THEY'RE OK!" Michael flew out the door with Shaun and Lanie on their heels. In the living room, Mr. and Mrs. Wilson were there with two giant trunks. "Michael! Lanie! Regus! Shaun! Lilly!" Mrs. Wilson tried to scoop all the children in her arms at the same time. "Never found Fred?" Mr. Wilson asked grimly. The 5 stared miserably at him. Shaun spoke up. "Oh Dad, we found him hiding at our old house. Then Deaths invaded and... killed Fred." Mrs. Wilson started crying as Mr. Wilson plopped down sadly. "But M-" "I uhh, tried my hardest." Michael said, cutting Shaun off. "I heard Dolohov, Avery, Bellatrix, and Lucius are gone." Mr. Wilson said happily. Lanie bit her lip. Michael held her hand. Lilly held Shaun's. They would never tell anyone who had really stopped the main Deaths. "What about the rest of the Deaths?" "A black-haired boy chased them away after an encounter with Lucius." All eyes turned to Regus. He grinned sheepishly. "What are you all looking at?" Mr. Wilson asked as Mrs. Wilson cried her heart out about Fred. "What about Nick, Peeves, McGonagall-" "I heard they fled once they heard a scream upstairs." Michael choked back a laugh. Well, he may not of been plastered across the Daily Prophet, but he saved a few friends. That was enough. ***** Last part next res! ~SKY

    This is the best series of books i would ever get

    It's a very good series, but it's not very entertaining. That's why i only rated it 3 stars.

    A Childhood staple

    We bought this book.

    Beverly Cleary is a staple of independent reader libraries for good reason. Ralph S. Mouse is daring, brave, and often gets in over his head. Tired of his little sisters and brothers and cousins (who always demand to ride his special bike) Ralph runs away to camp in search of boys he can have fun with )and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches).
    Instead he ends up caught, slapped in a cage, the personal pet of the weirdest boy in camp. Garf sings bad songs, doesn't talk much to the other kids and worse, the other kids think he's a thief. Ralph knows the truth, but can he help Garf, and why would he want to at all with Garf holding his prized motorcycle hostage?
    Ralph is far from a perfect character. He's selfish and a little bratty at times, but in his heart he's a good guy. In a way this makes him easier for kids to relate to, but parents may find themselves irritated at times by Ralph's mindset. Runaway Ralph is an early chapter book, about a hundred and eighty pages long and perfect for nightly reading. Not the best book out there, it's still a solid exploratory read, perfect for Stuart Little or Charlotte's Web fans and a good try-out book for hard to read-to kids (especially boys).
    A staple of beginner libraries Runaway Ralph makes for good memories and good bedtime reading for kids in the five to twelve and great beginner reading for kids ten to twelve.

    Runaway Ralph

    If you¿re someone who likes action and excitement, then this is the book for you. ¿Runaway Ralph¿ is a hilarious comedy with nonstop action. It is a treat to all readers out there. Ralph (in his opinion) is a mistreated mouse who deserves better. So he¿s made up his mind that he¿s going to run away to a life of danger and excitement.<BR/> The main characters in this story are Chum, Garf , Sam, and Ralph. Ralph is the main character. Chum, Ralph¿s best friend, is a rabbit. He may be obnoxious at times, but is very loyal to Ralph. Garf is a boy at Happy Acres Camp who saved Ralph from the very mischievous and sinister Catso. Ralph is Garf¿s buddy, but gets easily annoyed because of his terrible songs and voice. Sam is the guard dog, who at first doesn¿t get along with Ralph but later helps him get home back to the Mountain View Inn.<BR/>The setting of ¿Runaway Ralph¿ is at a summer camp called Happy Acres Summer camp. Happy acres camp is a camp where campers sing songs and try to have fun. The campers are very naïve, obnoxious and can¿t mind their business to save their lives. The most responsible things at the camp are Chum, Ralph, Sam, and Cato who aren¿t even human. So what does that tell you about the camp?<BR/>I think Beverly Cleary wrote this story to entertain readers with an interesting story. I recommend this book to kids who like mice, comedy, and action.<BR/><BR/> Beverly Cleary is 92 years old and is still writing books today, if you ask me I think that¿s really impressive.

Ralph is tired of sharing his mortercycle, so he runs away, but soon he gets lonely. A boy catches Ralph and keeps him as a pet. At the end of the story Ralph makes a deal with the boy.
