If you keep going for a little bit in Chapter 1, you will come to much more of a description of Ralph.  This is where he strips naked and is going to go swimming.  Here are some ways that he is described:

  • He no longer has any baby fat -- he has lost the "tummy of childhood."
  • But he's not yet awkward.
  • He looks like he's going to be physically impressive -- strong and heavy shoulders.
  • But he has a mild mouth and eyes.

The only other thing I can think of about him is that he's pretty athletic -- he can swim really well.
