Remember Your Writing Manners

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.~ Lynne Reid Banks The Indian in the Cupboard

The Indian in the Cupboard is one of Lynne Reid Banks's most popular books. It is a story about a boy named Omri who receives a cabinet for his birthday. He also receives a plastic Indian. His mother finds a key for the cabinet. Omri figures out that if he turns the key one time, the Indian comes to life. If he turns it a second time, the Indian returns to being a toy. Lynne Reid Banks used everyday things to create a fantasy story loved by many.
