Product Description

For his birthday, Omri receives a cupboard from his brother. But this is no ordinary cupboard; using his grandmother's magical key, he brings a plastic Native American figurine to life--an Iroquois from the 18th century. However, when Omri's best friend Patrick finds out about the cupboard, he starts off a chain reaction of events by bringing his own toy--a cowboy named Boone-to life.

Publisher's Description

Full of magic and appealing characters, this classic novel takes readers on a remarkable adventure.

It's Omri's birthday, but all he gets from his best friend, Patrick, is a little plastic Indian toy. Trying to hide his disappointment, Omri puts the Indian in a metal cupboard and locks the door with a mysterious skeleton key that once belonged to his great-grandmother. Little does Omri know that by turning the key, he will transform his ordinary plastic Indian into a real live man from an altogether different time and place! Omri and the tiny warrior called Little Bear could hardly be more different, yet soon the two forge a very special friendship. Will Omri be able to keep Little Bear without anyone finding out and taking his precious Indian from him?
