This book is about a boy named Omri and he an Indian and a cupboard for his birthday. Some of the characters in the story are Omri, Patrick, and Omri's two brothers. Omri puts the Indian in the cupboard overnight and then in the morning he heard something in the cupboard and he opened it and he saw the Indian alive. Omri keeps it to himself that his Indian came alive overnight in the cupboard. He builds Little Bear a longhouse to live in. He takes little bear and his horse outside for a ride. Little bear gets hurt outside and then Omri goes inside and he brings the chief alive so he can help Little Bear. Then the chief dies and then little bear takes charge of being chief. Omri didn't want to tell anyone about his cupboard turning plastic toys into real toys. His friend Patrick who gave him the toy and one day he slipped out that he was real. Patrick didn't believe him that he was real and then Patrick wanted to go to Omri's house and see himself. Omri took him to his house to see. When Patrick saw it he wanted one then. Omri didn't want him to have one because he was afraid that Patrick would tell everyone. Omri had to go downstairs for his mom. When he came back up Patrick had made a cowboy real. There is a good ending to the book but ill let you read the book so you can see what the ending is. Now you know some things about the book The Indian in the Cupboard. If you chose this book I hope my review as been helpful to you.

Indian In the Cupboard

It starts out with an Indian locked in a magic cupboard. The Indian came to life. I did not like this book because it did not make sense. This is a suspenseful book. This book was very boring. It did not make much sense to me.

    Insulting

    Seems very insulting to Native Americans. It is very strange, having a toy come to life and having a boy control the Native American. Also, they use the incorrect term of "indian".

    Awful!

    I couldn't believe how awful this book was! I had to read it in school as a class book. I don't know how my teacher could pick such a book. It was so boring! But if you like a story with a weird Indian who comes to life this book is for you!
