Lynne Reid Banks was evacuated from England to Canada during World War II, and she then returned to England in 1945 to study for the stage. She later became a freelance journalist and playwright and in 1955 became the first female TV news reporter. She has written many books for children, teenagers, and adults, including the bestselling The Indian in the Cupboard adventures.

Inside was a small white metal cupboard with a mirror in the door, the kind you see over the basin in old-fashioned bathrooms. You might suppose Omri would get another disappointment about this because the cupboard was fairly plain and, except for a shelf, completely empty, but oddly enough he was very pleased with it. He loved cupboards of any sort because of the fun of keeping things in them. He was not a very tidy boy in general, but he did like arranging things in cupboards and drawers and then opening them later and finding them just as he’d left them. I do wish it locked, he said.

The Indian in the Cupboard is a 1995 American family fantasy drama film directed by Frank Oz and written by Melissa Mathison, based on the children's book of the same name by Lynne Reid Banks. The story revolves around a boy who receives a cupboard as a gift on his ninth birthday. He later discovers that putting toy figures in the cupboard, after locking and unlocking it, brings the toys to life.

Johnson opened and shut his mouth for several seconds without a sound coming out. At last he croaked: Mrs. Hun. ’m afraid I’m unwell. His voice dropped to a mumble like an old man’s. Omri just caught the words. ack to their lesson.Then Mr. Johnson let go of Patrick’s arm, turned, walked most unsteadily to the door, and then put his hand on it and swayed as if he might fall over. Mr. Johnson! said Mrs. Hunt in a shocked tone. Shall I call a tax. N. ’ll be all right

This is a book I enjoyed as a child and it started me on a journey of loving to read. I was having a hard time teaching my 8 year old the joys of reading until I introduced this book to him. I love that the author challenges the young reader with new words instead of it being dreadfully simple. It’s just enough detail and just enough of a challenge with a wonderful mix of excitement. I also used this book as a class in my homeschool co-op. All the kids loved it, we have wonderful discussions about the chapters each week. I’ve had some students parents tell me how their child that hates reading has absolutely loved this book. The kids in my class have already asked several times about doing a class on the next book. I absolutely recommend this book!

This movie is still so good!
Family friendly, great kid story, draws a kids imagination and has a fun kid drama, with great ambient audio and the actors dont even feel like kid actors they just feel like kids being kids.
Great movie, stands the test of time.

I bought this book for my grandson and decided to read it too. As an adult, I really enjoyed the story and the fantasy. I also liked the lessons Omri learned as the "owner" of two small people. He learned to be responsible, brave, and to make tough decisions. This is a great book for kids - and adults. Will be ordering for my other grandchildren.

A fun book to read with the kids. All 3 are enjoying it (ages 7, 10 and 12). There are only a few British terms and words that the kids are confused about but nothing that we can't quickly explain. We're looking forward to then watching the movie and comparing the 2.

Love this book, just like I was 8 years old all over again, and I'm 38 now so that was quite a while ago. My two sons absolutely loved it 7 and 9, so it still resonates today

My fourth grader loved this book. I remember seeing the movie as a kid and thought the book might be fun for him. He absolutely loved it. It runs the full gamut of emotions. He would go from amazed to excited to sad. He really got into the book. It is the exciting and magic story of a boy who comes across a magic cupboard that brings toys to life. It was a good fit for my 4th grader.

Bought this as a recommended item, and my kids LOVE the story, so I bought the other 2 books in the series. We just finished the 3rd book last night and I would recommend these to anyone who likes a good story. Kept my kids enthralled with the action and interesting characters.
This was my husband's favorite book in elementary and we got it for our 9-year-old son. Still a great story that seems to be timeless.
