Gideon: His traits were loving, caring and he was helpful. His traits were a very important part to the story because when Teddy was poisoned he was caring and loving enough to Teddy that he helped him save his eye or maybe even his life. IF it wasn't for Gideon the whole story would've been different.
The story takes place in Southern Rhodesia in 1924, a family named the Farquars had a boy named teddy and the Farquars had a cook named Gideon who was a slave but treated him with respect. GIdeon and Teddy were like bestfriends, and one day Teddy was poisoned by a snake and Gideon saved his eye from a special plant. Then a scientist offered to give the family rewards for the plant.
The main conflict of the story was that Teddy was playing outside with his new scooter and he was poisoned by a snake that had spit in his eye. His mom took him to Gideon and he was concerned because he was going to lose his eye. Teddy was in pain, yelling, and crying. Gideon didn't know what to do. Soon a scientist showed up and said he would give them gifts for exchange of the plant.
The problem was solved from Gideon, he fled the scene and brought back special plant, and gave it to Teddy who was still crying. Teddy took the plant and felt better and the swelling came down. The Farquars thanked him and few days later Teddy was better than ever. Gideon after all did give the scientist the plant.
The theme is that people can come from different cultures. So people who do have different ways to treat illnesses. But it doesn't mean that one way is correct and the other is wrong.
