Publisher's Summary

It all started with a birthday present that Omri didn't want: a small plastic Indian that was no use to him at all. But an old wooden cupboard and a special key brought his unusual toy to life, and strange and wonderful things began to happen. As Omri struggles to balance his real life in England with the characters of the Wild West of 18th century America, his incredible adventures are a fantasy beyond his wildest imagination.

So well read.

I loved this book. Really, really well narrated in my opinion. Using this story to introduce my children to audio books. Plus, I don't mind listening to it again (and again, as kids are wont to do).

Couldn't stop them from listening...

We started this on a trip, and had to figure out how to listen at home as they went to bed.
Finally got them to turn it off 1 hour after normal lights out.
Next morning we are woken to the sound of the author reading... they figured it out themselves!
The sound quailty is great, the story is great. 8 year old loved it, 5 year old found it a bit long and didn't listen to it all.
I loved it!
