Indian in the Cupboard (Isis Large Print for Children Cornerstone)
Indian in the Cupboard - Isis Large Print for Children Cornerstone Author:Lynne Reid Banks, Brock Cole A nine-year-old boy receives a plastic Indian, a cupboard, and a little key for his birthday and finds himself involved in adventure when the Indian comes to life in the cupboard and befriends him.
This is a wonderful book to read aloud! The only problem I had with the story was the setting - no matter what the author wrote I kept seeing it set in New York City. Then the movie came out and I was totally vindicated! The first of a looonnnnggg series of books! Children form attachments and obcessions easily, so if it is for great writing I say BRING IT ON!
I read this book in 5th or 6th grade shortly after I read the Bridge to Terabithia. After I read this book I went out and rented the movie. Although the movie doesn't do it justice. The book is a lot better than the movie. Great story, definitely worth a read.
