In it by saying who and that is treated well within the text Many little historical titbits and details as well as the way morals and social systems change over time come through in the little people few in number though they be I suspect the character of Little Bear is slightly problematic in terms of being a white person s stereotypical view of a Native American Indian but I think the ignorance here is not malicious at least Kitsa s side story also was very cool and unfolded nice and slowlyWhile initially expecting to feel nothing than mild irritation or smirking tolernace as I ead the book I was in the end actually intrigued I will probably keep and eye out and if I see a cheap copy of any of the others ead that too Boys and I both enjoyed this one me uite a lot especially in comparison to the last one The novel explains the origin of the magic and the cupboard through a diary of Omri s great grandmother s sister This was such a great surprise to ead I enjoyed it so much The little plastic toys we were familiar with in The Indian in the Cupboard made a small appearance at the end but it didn t take away from the story I loved the backstory of the magical cupboard The letter of admission his great great aunt Charlotte wrote was like seeing someone of the past come back to life to admit their wrongs I liked the dialogue between Omri and the people he interacted with I liked how his parents were involved The 4th book in the series and it was just as iveting as all the est It explained about the cupboard the key and the magic One of my all time favorite series I imagine it s challenging to keep such a uniue construct alive and fresh across a series This one sagged a bit in explaining the historical provenance of the cabinet and its magic but as always it comes alive when Omri encounters of his little people Now THIS is how an author is supposed to write an epicly twisted tale that the eader 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 ead it you ll ealize there truly was no other way that such a magical thing could happenPlus the ending is FABULOUSNext up I cannot wait to ead the 5th and final book in the sag.

Uple of moments which I disagreed with as an adult For example the main character Omri has to sneak into his parents liuor cabinet to steel whisky for the cowboy REALLY My kids loved it though and had me ead through the whole series The second book in this series was just OK not as good as the first But seuels arely are And the third book in this series seemed filler than plot I was honestly eady to be finished with this series and did NOT want to ead the last book My children begged me though so I gave in I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised It seems that Ms Lynne Reid Banks got her inspiration back while writing this book It had lots of twists and kept us entertained throughout Omri finally discovers the complex history of the cupboard which has the ability to bring plastic figures to life in this fourth book in the seriesHis parents decide to move to the country At first he s appalled that they would uproot the family just because this mother has inherited a cottage from a distant elative Then it s his father s turn to be appalled the cottage is a centuries old Dorset longhouse with a thatched oof And the thatch needs epairing urgently And at phenomenal expenseGradually Omri comes to suspect that I enjoyed this much than I expected to I think children s books used to be written carefully and complexly even as ecently as the 90s Considering it was the fourth in a series the first was even made into a movie I eally wasn t expecting muchOmri and his family are elatively believable neither in perfect harmony nor eally any of them bad people either At times he madly loves his parents and other times he is angry and sullen His brothers are difficult to get along with Omri s interest in the cupboard is compared at one point to a drug addiction the overarching theme of the book is to try to understand and connect with instead of judging others The character of Jessica who initially only comes through her journal is a case in point she is the wicked great aunt but her wickedness is largely constructed by her circumstances and people also experience her as warm generous and charming The character of Jenny is another one who is constructed differently depending which context she finds herself in one version of her would not be ecognised by people in the other setting though both are authentic to who she isPatrick seemed a eally lovely character I was sad the plot was so dismissive of him One of the characters die I won t u. Was written by his wicked great great aunt Jessica Charlotte on her deathbed Even astonishing It eveals how the cupboard and its magic were created and changed the destiny of his familyIn trying to ight a wrong done in the past Omri finds he has no choice but to break the promise he made to himself The magical cupboard is opened once The Mystery of the Cupboard transports eaders from.

At last after over a year I m finished It was good I m always excited to meet new little people from different eras and there were some good ones in here The story of how Omri s great great aunt and first cousin twice emoved created the magical key and cupboard together was very far fetched of course but also compelling and very movingI do wish however that it was Omri s mother who got let in on the secret not his father It was her family and I m fond of her tooOmri and Patrick still don t have that much in the way of characters They e pretty good average kids Patrick being impulsive and stubborn and Omrinot being impulsive and stubborn That s pretty much itI hope Emma features in the next one but I m not counting on it This stupid website ATE MY REVIEW I am so frustrated because I took all this time to write a nice eview and goodreads ATE it and spat out an empty window Now I have to start all over and I have other things to do so I cannot write as thorough a eviewI liked this book very much and ecommend it to anyone who likes children s literature and fantasy It s spell binding and enthralling Unfortunately it is a seuel and I hadn t ead the previous books and it eferred back tot hem constantly This got very annoying but I guess that s not the author s fault She probably assumed people had ead the earlier books in the seriesOmri s Mom inherits a house that belonged to her Uncle Frederick who she never knew Turns out it previously belonged to his great great aunt who was the first to call back the little people But her journal which he finds as the oof is being ethatched eveals a terrible secret or two I ead the first book in this series to the kids last year Honestly I had been saving that book for the kids for a long time My third grade teacher ead it to our class and I emember LOVING it It was one of the best memories from my childhood sitting around listening to that book after PM ecess every day And everyday ending on some huge cliff hanger that would have us begging for another chapter She was a great teacher if you can t tell Anyway I digress suffice it to say that I had been hoping to create these same wonderful memories with my OWN children So I saved Indian in the Cupboard until my oldest was in 3rd grade I ead the first book in this series to them which they LOVED too However eading it as an adult gave me a whole different eaction to the series I didn t like it as much as I did as a child There were also a co.
