I don't like the format-- no backtrack / rewind
Would you try another book from Beverly Cleary and/or B. D. Wong?
What did you like best about this story?
Great story for kids to listen to in the car
What didn’t you like about B. D. Wong’s performance?
B.D. Wong's performance was excellent.
Did Runaway Ralph inspire you to do anything?
I bought the next book in the series.
Any additional comments?
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
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
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.
What other book might you compare Runaway Ralph to and why?
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.
Have you listened to any of B. D. Wong’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
B.D Wong also narrates the other book in the 'Ralph' series. His voice animates the mouse perfectly.
