When I was a kid, two of my favorite books were The Castle in the Attic and The Indian in the Cupboard. Both of these tales involved toy historical figures coming to life and or sucking the owner into a historic era. Come to think of it, The Castle in the Attic reminded me a lot of the scene in Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure when the crazy duo jet on into Medieval times– only The Castle in the Attic used the phrase, “dude” considerably less. I loved these stories; the idea of history literally coming to life always enthralled me.
