This picture book will delight the very young who enjoy suspense and allow children to explore the question they love to ask "and then what happens?" with increasingly dramatic effect.
What I loved: This was quite an imaginative picture book that invites children to think of consequences to their actions and the many things that can happen as a result of each decision. The bright colors along with focused illustrations of each object are very attention-grabbing. With relatively few words on each page, this is a book that could move very fast, which works well for young readers.
What left me wanting more: I found the story theme a bit challenging in that it seems to be catastrophizing, particularly about something that would be out of a child's control (eventually, the butterfly would fly away and may cause that same issue?), particularly since they make a different decision, which also leads to the same consequence. This may be a difficult read for sensitive or anxious children, unless they understand also the absurdity of it and that small things they do would not lead to downstream total destruction. It may just need some additional discussion.
Final verdict: An imaginative story of consequences, AND... invites children to think of downstream events resulting from their decisions.
