As you can assess, the theme of the story is that of a serious one. While the theme may be serious, the tone is prevented from traveling in the same direction by use of some figures of speech. They affect the tone of the story by lightening it through gentle images which even at times seem to pertain to fantasy.The exaggeration of some details certainly agree with this, such as when a bee is referred to ‘’a monster’’ and ‘’a dragon in the air.’’
