A tiny army has frightened away the "skinheads" who tried to rob Omri's house. The boys are left to explain to Omri's parents the tiny bullet holes and other damage. Complications multiply when Patrick is sent back to Boone's time, Omri's school principal tumbles into the secret, and Boone and his girlfriend are stuck in the present. For all the action, the pacing of this book is slowed down because of the several shifts in point of view and time. For example, as the tension builds over what to do about Little Bear's wounded comrades, the story switches to Patrick, who is coping with life in Boone's wild west. The cyclone from Boone's time is a too convenient deus ex machina that drives all thoughts of "little people" from the adults' minds and causes enough confusion and damage to let the boys cover their tracks and protect their friends from the past.
Sequel to the Indian in the Cupboard. Great for kids and adults!
If you enjoyed Indain in a cupboard you will enjoy this and the others that were written to go along with the first one. An incredible new adventure Omri and Patrick are forced to share their secret with Patricks cousin Emma.
