Many of the important parts in this story have affected their maturity and way of life. There was a quote from Alice In Wonderland that relates to this book, Alice asks “Where should I go?” and the cat tells her “That depends on where you want to end up”.

There were a lot of similarities and differences between the short story version of All Summer in a Day written by Ray Bradbury and the movie version directed by Ed Kaplan. But I think the movie version was better because it showed more things in it than the short story did. For example in the short story they did not mention the sun lamps but in the movie they started out with the children in the sun lamps.
