Fed up with his family, Ralph decides to hop on his motorcycle and head down the road to Happy Acres Camp. Unfortunately, life at camp is not all peanut butter-and-jelly sandwiches! A strict watchdog, a mouse-hungry cat, and a troubled boy named Garf keep Ralph on his toes and away from his precious motorcycle. Perhaps home is not such a bad place to be, if only Ralph can find a way to get there again!More

I don't like the format-- no backtrack / rewind
Great story for kids to listen to in the car
B.D. Wong's performance was excellent.
I bought the next book in the series.
The only problem that I had with this purchased download was that the recording was not segmented into chapters. Instead, it was just one long audio file. I could not backtrack / rewind to the previous chapter. I saved it onto iTunes, transferred it to an iPod, and then played it in the car (2011 Toyota Corolla). When I hit the backtrack / rewind button, the recording skipped back to the very beginning, no matter where it was in the story. So, if we did not hear a part of it, or we had to pause for a moment, we had no option to rewind it to the beginning of the current chapter. The only option was to start completely over at the beginning.

Wonderful Story to enjoy with a child
I read this book with my 10 year old grandson and we enjoyed it immensely. I would recommend it to a parent/grandparent/child team.
It is a gentle story similar in feel to 'Stuart Little' or 'Charlotte's Web'. The character learns much about life and lessons are 'taught' without being moralistic. The character's naivete and the author's touch of humour is very endearing.
B.D Wong also narrates the other book in the 'Ralph' series. His voice animates the mouse perfectly.
