Twenty years before there was Harry Potter, there was The Indian in the Cupboard — a book series that became a craze in England, thousands of families eagerly awaiting the next installment of what would total a five-book series. The Indian in the Cupboard tells the story of a young boy, Omri, whose toy plastic Indian magically comes to life — a real live Iroquois Indian, three inches tall. The story is humorous, active, scary, and wise.
It was later adapted as a children's film under the same name. Later books in the series were illustrated by Piers Sanford later. The publisher recommended reading level is age nine and up. All the books revolve around a young boy, Omri, who discovers the powers of a magical cupboard. When plastic toys are locked in the cupboard, they become real, living beings, resulting in Omri befriending an 18th century Iroquois Haudenosaunee chief named Little Bear. As the series progresses, Omri and his friend Patrick learn more about the cupboard's powers, including its ability to transport people to and from through history. The book has received numerous awards and been both critiqued and praised on its literary merit and has once been recommended reading in school curriculum.
