The Key To The Indian by Lynne Reid Banks
Write 6 words you would put on this book if it were in the “Blind Date With A Book” shelf. Indians, War, Longhouse, Farewell, Camping, Fire.
Who was your favorite character and why? Omri because I could relate to him the most.
Who was your least favorite character and why? I didn’t have a least favorite. They were either one of my favorites or not so bad that they were my least favorite.
Did it grab you immediately or did it take a while? The Indian in The Cupboard series books tend to start out with someone announcing a decision they have made, which always grabs me.
What did you think of the ending? Touching.
What was the moral of the story? The truth is usually complicated but sometimes it’s worth the long figuring-it-out process.
Did you learn anything? I learned what perfidious albion meant and what a solar topee was.
Favorite quote: “But it’s one thing to move when you want to. Another to be driven away, far away, not knowing where you’ll end up or what will happen to you on the journey.” – Lynne Reid Banks.
Have you read other books in the series? I have read the whole series now and this one contained the most information and excitement. See my other reviews of the Indian In The Cupboard series here.
Who would you recommend it to? People who enjoyed The Mystery Of The Cupboard, people who think they have a special gift, and people who feel horribly for what happened the Native Americans.
Number of unknown words: 35
