A tale of magic and responsibility, read by Richard E. Grant.
For Omri, it is a dream come true when the plastic American Indian he locks into the old cupboard comes to life. Little Bull is everything an Indian brave should be - proud, fearless and defiant.
But being in charge of a real, live, human being is a heavy responsibility, as Omri soon discovers. And when his best friend, Patrick, is let in on the secret, he soon realises that life-changing decisions lie ahead.

"An assured piece of story-telling, well able to stand comparison with older classics." (Times Educational Supplement)
This is not an unabridged version of the book. Youtube has people reading from the actual book and there is lots missed out and simplified. Not impressed at all.
It brought me back to my childhood as I used to have this on audio cassette. It's well read and I've always loved the story of the Indian in the Cupboard!
The borrowers maybe? But faster paced and more modern.
He is good at ding different voices!
This is absolutely one of my favourite books, and now one of my favourite audio books too.
The story is full of adventure, excitement and wonder. It is suitable for the whole family. Myself, my partner and my two children (7 and 5) were all enthralled.
Richard reads the story very well indeed. He has a good clear voice, a nice steady pace, and he adds just the right amount of excitement and emotion to the tale. Very well done. I was impressed.
The story is full of wonder, excitement and adventure - just as a good (children's) book should be.
A great buy, highly recommended.
