If we had a mouse, we’d probably name it Ralph, after the titular character in Beverly Cleary’s books.
Why? Well for one, he can talk (though only to certain characters) and two, he can talk. This puts him in truly a unique position to experience life as a human being does. This is of course why Ryan, his friend in the hotel gave him that motorcycle, right? Can you picture Ralph, channeling his inner Dennis Hopper as he cruises down the hotel hallways at night, or even the hallways of the boy’s school (after he ran away) while Born to be Wild blasts in the background? We can, and for conjuring such a scene for us, that mouse becomes the most epic rodent this side of The Secret of NIMH (though those rats and mice certainly deserve some credit for the things they do and the complexity of the society in the rosebush before they leave for Thorn Valley).
All that aside though, Folkmanis’ little brown stuffed mouse makes a good counterpart to Ralph. Ralph may not be real in the physical sense, but this fuzzy little guy is, and coming from Folkmanis, of course he’s a fun little puppet, so you can totally get wrapped up in his story.
What’s that? You want to make up your own stories and adventures? Why, that’s a given! Of course you can. So what if they don’t turn you into a beloved author of kiddie books, we bet they’ll be as epic as Ralph in their own way. So don’t hold back!
