The Key to the Indian (Paperback)Lynne Reid Banks (author)
- In stock online
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.
