Criticas
Gr 3-5-This now-classic tale first published in English (HarperCollins, 1986) has been nicely translated into Spanish. Ralph is a reckless little mouse living with his extended family in Room 215 of the Hotel Bellavista (Mountain View Inn in the English version). When new guests come to stay in the room, Ralph is surprised and delighted that the boy in the family, Keith, can communicate with him. Better still, Keith has an entire fleet of snazzy miniature cars as well as a bright red motorcycle with shiny chrome fenders sized perfectly for a mouse. As they become friends, the boy and the mouse have to learn to trust each other. Ralph has to show the boy that he can be trusted to ride the motorcycle. Keith promises to provide the mouse family with "room service" for as long as he resides at the hotel. The relationship between the two protagonists is realistic in its lack of sentimentality. They deal with each other in an admiring and straightforward manner while maintaining an age-appropriate self-involvement that will resonate with kids. Cleary does a wonderful job of imagining exciting and dangerous mouse adventures involving snarling dogs, rodent-averse maids, hungry owls, and ruthless exterminators. Darling's pen-and-ink illustrations hit the perfect comic note and are well positioned throughout the text. The dialog and the settings still seem fresh and current. This action-packed story will hold the attention of an entire class at story time and can be read by the most reluctant of readers. Recommended for school and public libraries. Also a safe bet for bookstore shelves.

Meet the Author

Beverly Cleary is one of America's most beloved authors. As a child, she struggled with reading and writing. But by third grade, after spending much time in her public library in Portland, Oregon, she found her skills had greatly improved. Before long, her school librarian was saying that she should write children's books when she grew up.

Instead she became a librarian. When a young boy asked her, "Where are the books about kids like us?" she remembered her teacher's encouragement and was inspired to write the books she'd longed to read but couldn't find when she was younger. She based her funny stories on her own neighborhood experiences and the sort of children she knew. And so, the Klickitat Street gang was born!

Mrs. Cleary's books have earned her many prestigious awards, including the American Library Association's Laura Ingalls Wilder Award, presented to her in recognition of her lasting contribution to children's literature. Dear Mr. Henshaw won the Newbery Medal, and Ramona Quimby, Age 8 and Ramona and Her Father have been named Newbery Honor Books. Her characters, including Beezus and Ramona Quimby, Henry Huggins, and Ralph, the motorcycle-riding mouse, have delighted children for generations.
