    still not as good as The Indian in the Cupboard

    The Secret of the Indian picks up where The Return of the Indian leaves off. Omri and Patrick find that they can transport themselves back in time and go to the dangerous nineteenth-century world of the cowboy Boone. In the process, they are forced to share their secret with Patrick's cousin Emma, and all of England is threatened by a disastrous cyclone that Patrick brings back from the old American West. These books are exciting reading, but as is true in so many cases the sequels are never quite as good as the original. In addition, there is a fair amount of bad language, with the word "God" fairly frequently used as an interjection, lots of euphemisms, and even an instance or so in each book of the "h" word used as an exclamation. There are also several references to drinking alcoholic beverages. Do children really need to be reading about that? Furthermore, the attitudes and actions of the children are sometimes less than exemplary. I would not discount these books entirely, but I think that parents do need to be aware of the possible objections. My preference would be to do these as read alouds so that the offending portions could be omitted.

    Fantasy fan

    I enjoyed this book because it was a perfect mix of fantasy and realistic fiction. It was a well developed story as well. The book starts as Omri's parents return home. As they walk in they see their house was invaded. Omri and his best friend Patrick manage to get a vague explanation of what happened. Suddenly Patrick's cousin, Emma, comes to Omri's house the next day. Patrick then wants to be sent to Boone's time. Unfortunately, Emma discovers the Indian and the cupboard. Then Omri sees Boone, who was supposed to be with Patrick, is in Omri's house half dead! Meanwhile Patrick is in a desert in Texas and is as small as the plastic figures at Omri's house. He is brought to a saloon where he meets Boone's friend Ruby Lou. The next day Boone recovers but Omri must go to school. At an assembly, Omri must read his award winning story to the school. Afterward he is brought to the headmaster's office because the headmaster believes the story is true,'one day he saw Little Bear and Boone.' At that time, Patrick and Ruby Lou see a twister coming. At Omri's house, he is bombarded with questions. He goes to his room to bring back Patrick, but also brings back a cyclone from Texas that destroys Omri's room. After the twister leaves Omri is no longer getting question asked. Luckily, Patrick is brought back and the cupboard is safe. However, he doesn't find the key to the cupboard. Will he find it? I would recommend this book to any fantasy fans. This book is a great fantasy book. I would also recommend this book to anyone who enjoys books by Lynne Reid Banks.
