The Indian in the Cupboard is one of those rare books that is equally appealing to children and adults. Although their mother supplies a key, the cabinet still doesn't seem like much of a present. For kids, it's a great yarn; for most parents, it's also a reminder that Omri's wrenching decision to send his toy back to its own world is not so different from the recognition of their children's emerging independence. But when an exhausted Omri dumps a plastic toy Indian into the cabinet just before falling asleep, the magic begins. The story of Omri and the Indian, Little Bear, is replete with subtle reminders of the responsibilities that accompany friendship and love. Turn the key once and the toy comes alive; turn it a second time and it's an action figure again. What could be better than a magic cupboard tha
