Now THIS is how an author is supposed to write an epicly twisted tale that the reader just can't get enough of. Omri continues his adventures with his plastic-come-to-life friends in "The Mystery of the Cupboard". There are so many individual elements that had to come together throughout time to create the story of "The Indian in the Cupboard" as we know it. This book pieces the puzzling history together in a fantastic and almost unbelievable way. But once you read it, you'll realize there truly was no other way that such a magical thing could happen. Plus, the ending is FABULOUS. Next up, I cannot wait to read the 5th and final book in the saga.
My husband read "The Indian in the Cupboard" aloud to our grandchildren and myself several years ago. We all loved it and have read all the "Indian" books since. They are very exciting and riveting. Like potato chips (you can"t eat just one!) more than one chapter is demanded at a sitting because it is too thrilling to put down. What's going to happen next....?. We were sorry when we had finished them all and there were no more to look forward to! But we did enjoy them thoroughly.
ok was ok ,but i think there should have been more to it. it ended with something sad and then it kept you hanging waiting for the next book. On the bright side the book was sort of better than the other ones. i think you should read the whole series.
This is a got to read book! (best for 3rd & 4th grades)
