The Indian In The Cupboard by Lynne Reid Banks

The Indian In The Cupboard

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.

My thoughts:

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!
