It is very clever, and the novelist can convey things which the child narrator is not aware of. Phew, that's pretty incredible. It's a definite genre of the novel, and I suppose there are related techniques, e.g. a narrator who is a bit batty, and also there are narrators who are jokers/tricksters, and also out and out liars. I think 'To Kill a Mockingbird' plays around with this very cleverly?
