When I reviewed The Indian in the Cupboard I gave it a good rating. There are several sequels, the first of which is The Return of the Indian, where Omri decides to bring Little Bear back for one last time. However, the Indian has been shot in a French and Algonquin raid on his Iroquois village and is dying. Omri and his friend Patrick must bring a plastic nurse figure to life in an attempt to save him. Then Little Bear demands that they bring a more modern army with deadlier weapons to life in an attempt to go back and save his village. What starts out as an attempt to help turns into a horrible nightmare.

From the first page to the last, I was enthralled in this book! I remember reading the prequel "The Indian in the Cupboard" and thinking that it was a nice enough story, but it didn't leave a big impression on me. On the other hand, reading "The Return of the Indian" took Omri's amazing story to a completely different level.
There's so much adventure and excitement packed into this one book. I almost couldn't stand the suspense in certain parts!
It's the Perfect read for anyone who likes a bit of thrilling action!

The name of the book I¿m reviewing is The Return of the Indian by Lynne Reid Banks. I think this book deserves five stars because it is full of mystery and suspense. This book is about a boy named Omri who vowed to never use his magic cupboard again, which has the power to turn plastic figures alive! But they¿re not just living toys they¿re real people from different times! Omri does bring his plastic Indian, named Little Bear, and his friend Patrick¿s plastic cowboy named Boone. They have many exciting and dangerous adventures together. I recommend this book to anyone who read the first book, The Indian in the Cupboard.

I enjoyed this book because it contained humor as well as well-thought predicaments. Even though the book was fantasy the author made it sound very realistic. The story begins as Omri, a boy, walks home. He had moved to a new and more dangerous neighborhood. When he got home he received a letter stating a book he wrote would be published and Omri would receive 300 pounds (British currency). Then Omri remembered how he got the idea for the story, the experience with the magical cupboard and the Indian, Little Bear. So Omri decided to see if the cupboard still worked. It did but there was one problem, Little Bear had been shot. Omri then tried to bring back a World War I medic but he was killed. There was only one hope, Omri's best friend Patrick. Patrick was trying to forget about the cupboard but Omri convinced him to help. They tried to ¿borrow¿ a surgeon figure from Patrick's cousin, but only managed to get a nurse. The nurse did, however, succeed in the operation. At that time they learned that Little Bear's wife, Bright Stars, would have a baby. They also decided to bring back a friend of Little Bear, a cowboy named Boone. While Boone settled in, Little Bear talked about the French raiding the Indian's village. They tried using modern day soldiers but that didn't work. They did succeed in using other Iroquois. They still needed to teach these Indians how to shoot modern day weapons. So they used a British Corporal named Fickits. Now they were ready to save the village, so Omri sent then back. At that time Boone had asked if the key was magical, and not the cupboard, while Bright Stars prepared to have her baby. Patrick tested it and it worked, you would be there but only as part of a nonliving object. Then Omri tested it and was part of a tepee (which is strange because Iroquois lived in long houses). While he was there, he discovered terrible news, Algonquin enemies would attack at night. They did come at night, but since there was nothing to steal, they tried to burn the village. They managed to burn the tepee, but then Little Bear's army attacked. During the battle, Omri was brought back but had a bloody nose and a burnt head. Two hours later, people tried raiding Omri's house. Fickits, however, ended that plan. There was still a few problems though, how would Omri explain this to his parents? How many survived the battle? I would recommend this book to anyone who loves fantasy. This book is a great example of fantasy. I would also recommend this book to anyone interested in Native American battles.
