VINE VOICEon 17 September 2005
I have such fond memories as a kid of being utterly absorbed by the story of Omri and the adventures he had with his tiny indian friend. Rarely in a trilogy have I seen all three books meet the same high standard, but this is a wonderful exception. I'm a 25-year-old adult now, and I still love to settle down and re-read this one. I remember it being a very comfortable, easy-read as a kid, and being utterly un-put-downable. And it still is. A definite must buy.

this book is amazing down to the last page. its mainly about a boy, omri, who gets a cupboard for his birthday. it has a lock but no key. after getting a key from his mother, that once belonged to his great- granmother he tries it in the lock...and it fits. he puts a plastic toy indian in it and locks it before going to sleep. in the morning he wakes...to find that that the indian had come to life.

I bought this to read to my 9 year old. I had previously read the stories to his older brother and although they are very different children they both fell in love with Little Bull and were enthralled by these adventures. I enjoyed reading them again too. The stories are compelling but also deal with some interesting moral dilemmas in a clever way. A real children's classic, I recommend this book.

This was the best. I bought the first book and then had to come back to buy the other 2 as my son would not stop nagging me. In the end I bought the trilogy for him which he read immediately, did not put down until it was finished. I would rate this as one of the best children's books about. I actually remember reading it when I was at school - some 30 odd years ago so it was fun that my son could recap the story for me.

I was first introduced to the indian when i was 9, my teacher at school read it to our class. i remember being genuinely enthralled in the adventures of omri, patrick and their tiny freinds and went to the library shortly after to reread the book to myself. Definatly recomended for children age 8+, if read at the right age it can be truly delighting to re-read 10 years on like i had the pleasure of doing this afternoon

When I asked my Dad for a book, he bought me this. I read it in two and a half days. It is a must for kids that like plastic figures. Lynne Reid-Banks writes it in a way that made me feel as if I was there. Enjoy this book!

These books capture childhood excitement about new toys, the possibilty of magic in their lives and coming-of-age. They're exciting even as a young adult, as I am now! The style is completely absorbing and un-put-downable. I adore them!

Watched the movie of the first book many years ago and enjoyed it, this book also has two more books in the series which are probably equally as good as the first, I believe there are two more books in the series out there so will be looking for them, good story, three books for the price of one, good value, excellent read.
