The fifth title in this gripping series about Omri and his plastic North American Indian -- Little Bull -- who comes alive when Omri puts him in a cupboard. Omri and his father travel back in time to find Little Bull and his people in deep trouble, torn between staying in the West and facing extinction or starting a long trek to a new life in Canada. Omri's final parting with Little Bull is incredibly moving yet the book is also very funny. We meet other favourite characters as well as some new ones and there are wonderful descriptive passages about Little Bull's longhouse and the Iroquois lifestyle. Even though this seems like the end of the story, Lynne does have ideas for a sequel.

The Key to the Indian is the end to a fantastic book series! I don't usually read the fantasy genre, but this is one series I'm glad to have expanded my literary horizons with.
The final book ends with Omri attempting to achieve his most challenging adventure yet -- taking multiple people back in time to visit the Mohawk Indians and save his "toy" friend, Little Bear's, tribe.
I'm so impressed with how the author brought Omri's parents into the adventure. Most books written for children try to show how much fun the main characters can have while not including their parents. I found the whole story to become more special because of how the adults were involved.
Many lessons are learned, secrets are lifted, and history is unveiled.
I would recommend this to anyone who likes British books (that is, British books that are about Native Americans!). Sometimes it reads more like a fantasy Western. But hey, I love it!
Now that I finished The Indian in the Cupboard books... I just HAVE to find out what else this author writes.
