You all know how much I like a book with a moral to the story and this short story has a moral but surprisingly I did not love this story. I picked it up because i was in a bit of a slump and I wanted something easy to read and I suppose it filled both of those needs at only 72 pages I whizzed through it in about ten minutes but I wanted a bit more from it.
Basically a butterfly effect is set off when Toby drops his cricket bat over a wall. The story plays out the things that happen as a direct effect of this and some of this is good an some of it is bad.
The story has a sort of Christmas Carol feel when the Marley ghost visits Scrooge which was an interesting way to tell the story.
I am clearly not the target demographic for this story and so I only gave it a 2 star but I do think it wouold be ideal when teaching young children a lesson.
Thanks for Reading
