The Lovereading4Kids comment
Lynne Reid Banks’s much-loved book has all the ingredients of a perfect children’s story. Nine-year old Omri is given two important gifts for his birthday: a plastic Indian figure from his friend Patrick and a metal cupboard from his brother. The cupboard has no lock but his mother gives him an old key. Omri discovers that the cupboard and the key together work magic and when he locks his Indian figure in the box overnight, by morning he’s come to life. Looking after Little Bull is hard work, and gets harder when Patrick, let in on the secret, uses the cupboard to bring a cowboy figure to life. Magic, a miniature world, children in sole charge, The Indian in the Cupboard is a true classic, and gives children an understanding of themselves and the world in which they live. ~ Andrea Reece
