Indian in the Cupboard, The

Lynne Reid Banks
It all started with a birthday present Omri didn't want -- a small, plastic Indian that no use to him at all. But an old wooden cupboard and a special key brought his unusual toy to life. And then even stranger things began to happen- wonderful, secret, dangerous...magical things.

This was a good story with a good message. I found it to be entertaining and the fantasy elements interesting. I liked our main character, Omri, and seeing him handle this new found magical item he obtained. I did enjoy a majority of the characters but found some of them to be annoying. There were some instances where certain things happed that I found to be a bit unbelievable or even a bit of a stretch. For example, when Omri is given this chest for his birthday that they found but it is locked and they don't have a key. Then low and behold their mother has a stash of old keys in a collection and one of them just happens to work and opens the chest. I found that to be a bit of a stretch. All in all it was a good story and one that I think families would enjoy.
