I think one of the satirical comments is that we usually stand on a “high hill” of literacy and look down on the one who is called “stupid”. For example, in the book, many people such as the Warden considered Zeroni a completely fool just because Zeroni seldom talked to her. However, in fact Zeroni learned very fast and he was a very smart person. I learned it when he said Stanley’s name was on the case. The author also wrote many similar cases such as Mr. Pendanski (when he asked the boy that what they wanted to be in the future, he seemed very kind but in fact he wasn’t) and the Warden. It shows that the readers often consider the folks’ characteristic so fast and don’t think more until the truth is shown.
In the reality life we also might define a person too fast. I think this idea is similar to one of the ideas in Charlottes’ Web.
The second comment I found is that people seldom want to take the blame of a mistake or an unlucky thing. When Stanley Yelnatss caught in an unlucky thing, they would blame the pig-stealing Yelnats. In the end of the book, Stanley’s mum even doubt if Elya Yelnats really stole a pig when Stanley returned home.
