“The Mouse and the Motorcycle (Ralph Mouse Book 1)” by Beverly Cleary, Tracy Dockray –
““Ralph!” cried his frightened mother. “You haven’t been associating with people!”
“Aw, he’s just a boy,” said Ralph, deciding to keep the complete story of the dangers and the glories of the past night to himself. “He wouldn’t hurt us. He likes mice.”
“But he’s a person,” said his mother.
“That doesn’t mean he has to be bad,” said Ralph. “Just like Pop used to say, people shouldn’t say all mice are timid just because some mice are. Or that all mice play when the cat’s away just because some do.””
