Boyne explores the theme of the significance of innocence through use of malapropisms and third person subjective naive limited narrator.

Malapropisms include:

-          “Heil Hitler," he said, which, he presumed, was another way of saying, "Well, goodbye for now, have a pleasant afternoon.” 

-          Bruno internally deludes himself into believing that Shmuel has many friends and is so much luckier than him

-          Bruno does not understand his father's role in the Holocaust and just knows that it is important for the 'foreseeable future' and his uniform is handsome
