The humor in this book is very subtle. As everything is from the POV of a child, we can see how silly a lot of the Europeans are. They sit around under a shade tree, poking sticks at ants, talking about nonsense as the Africans do all the work. They complain the African women do all the hard labor and they want to change the culture, but they have no idea what’s really going in.
