The Mouse and the Motorcycle (Avon Camelot Books)

The Mouse and the Motorcycle - Beverly Cleary, Tracy Dockray A childhood favorite revisited. It's a simple story, free of extraneous threads and unneeded distractions, and portrays its characters in small scenes that give the reader enough space to let his imagination wander. Maybe I'm a cynic, but a tale this direct would probably have a hard time being published now.
