Summary

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.

Abridged version of the story

Any additional comments?

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.

What did you like most about The Indian in the Cupboard?

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!

What other book might you compare The Indian in the Cupboard to, and why?

The borrowers maybe? But faster paced and more modern.

What does Richard E. Grant bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

He is good at ding different voices!

Brilliant Story, Well Told.

Where does The Indian in the Cupboard rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is absolutely one of my favourite books, and now one of my favourite audio books too.

What did you like best about this story?

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.

What about Richard E. Grant’s performance did you like?

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.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The story is full of wonder, excitement and adventure - just as a good (children's) book should be.

Any additional comments?

A great buy, highly recommended.
