Runaway Ralph by Beverly Cleary
Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe
The story begins in Mountain View Inn where a mouse named Ralph lives with his family. Ralph has a motorcycle. Ralph's Mom makes him give rides to all of his sisters and brothers. Ralph grudgingly agrees to give each one a ride. When Ralph finds out that some of his brothers and sisters have had more than one ride, he decides to run away.
Ralph runs away on his motorcycle to a place called Happy Acres Camp. When he gets there he is captured by a mean tomcat named Catso.
I liked this book a lot because it has lots of danger and excitement. My favorite part was when Ralph rides down the road to Happy Acres camp on his motorcycle because it's a fast and thrilling ride. Another part I really liked was when Catso knocked over Ralph's cage and then there was a big chase. If you like thrilling adventures, you'll like this book.

The author of The Adventures of Robinson Crusoe is Daniel Defoe. Some of his other books are Moll Flanders and Colonel Jack.
The book is a novel about survival set in the 1800s. The main character, Robinson Crusoe, is shipwrecked and stranded on a jungle island. Some of the other characters are; Friday, Friday's Father, and the Spaniard. At first, Robinson Crusoe learns how to survive on the island. Then there is a fast-action fighting part, where Robinson fights savages and rescues some captives. Finally, he saves the captain of a ship from a group of mutineers. This book has a happy ending because Robinson goes back to his home in England.
I liked this book a lot because it has a lot of action and adventure. I especially liked the part where Robinson and Friday (a rescued captive) fight the savages. There are lots of good illustrations that make the book more interesting. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes adventure stories.
