Hello friends! This is my seventh review for the 48 Hour Book Challenge. Hope you like it! Omri’s friend Patrick gave him a toy Indian for his birthday. He is not that happy-he was hoping for something better. But something miraculous happens; the Indian comes alive! Omri thinks that is the best thing in the world, but he soon learns it is a big responsibility since this Indian is a living breathing person and has his own life; he is not a toy any more. In a struggle to keep the Indian a secret and Patrick not envious, Lynne Reid Banks comes in with a great start to the 5-book series.
I really liked this book! I thought the plot was great and the storyline was excellent. I loved how the Indian came to life; it would be boring if he hadn’t. The setting in England was played out very well, as was the struggle to keep Little Bear (the Indian) a secret. The illustrations went very well with the text, even if there were few of them. This book has been on my to-read list for years, sitting on my shelf but I FINALLY read it. I am glad I did. I can not wait to read more of the adventures of Omri and Little Bear.
Overall: 9 out of 10 XanderStars
Next will be Horten’s Miraculous Mechanisms by Lissa Evans.
Hope you enjoyed the 48 Hour Book Challenge as much as I did!
