Point of view refers to the narrator's perspective or position in relation to the events of the story.  "The Destructors" has an omniscient point of view, which means that the narrator is all knowing.  The narrator knows everything about all of the characters in the novel and includes insight about multiple characters' thoughts, including: Mike, Blackie, Trevor, and Mr. Thomas.  The narrator divulges everything from information the various gang members' thoughts concerning T's precarious position as leader within the gang to Mr. Thomas' panicky thoughts as the boys lock him in the outhouse.
