Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for The Indian in the Cupboard "An assured piece of story-telling, well able to stand comparison with older classics." Times Educational Supplement "Enthralling and hair-raising reading." TLS Praise for The Secret of the Indian "There have been many famous stories in which children's toys come alive: this book is in the same great tradition." School Library Association Praise for The Key to the Indian "...a swiftly-moving, tightly-plotted, exciting, funny tale, which will keep the reader firmly hooked and frantically turning the pages." Carousel

This is a must reading for anyone over the age of eight. Either read it to your child or get your child to read it by themselves. It soars the imagination and every child can relate to the immensity that this caretaker takes on. It is really funny in places and sad in others, but the theme is wonderful. It will go down as a children's classic. I read it to both my two children (who are now 32 and 34) and all my classes (5th and 6th graders) and it was loved by all.

we were read this as kids 30 some years ago, and enjoyed it. as i read it to my kids, the stereotypes grate on my more modern pc trained ears. still fun stories though, and i'm finishing it because omri, the main character learns about indian culture and so my kids are learning too. overall, i think they will come away with respect as we discuss how some of omri's presumptions about indians were quite silly. reid writes with awesome vocabulary, so the book can be educational in that way for younger kids like mine.

This book broke every PC rule in the book, was full of violence and inappropriate sexism and racial bias. It was also vaguely disturbing if I allowed myself to think about the Indian and the Cowboy as 'real' little people somehow transformed into plastic figurines and them again into a child's real-life playthings.

HOWEVER, despite all this, my son (who is the definition of a reluctant reader) couldn't put it down and neither could I. It was exciting, thrilling and a giant interactive adventure from a reader's perspective.

Warts and all, I give it 5 stars.

Many people are offended by the language in the book which while is you choice to be offended is honestly a little silly. It's a book, it's historically accurate. That is ok. We can teach our children our past and then explain to them why it changed .. that is a good thing. My daughter 7, loved the first book and we are knee deep in the second and she likes this one as well.
