I have to admit I wasn't quite expecting this short story to end like it did, but overall this was an enjoyable read which captured the fact that everything in the world is exciting when you're a kid. If you're looking for an action packed dramatic adventure then this isn't for you, but if you're looking for a quick snapshot of family life then The Butterfly Effect provides an enjoyable ten minutes or so of reading entertainment.
