Themes

Childhood innocence (It never occured to Ravi that the other children could be so cruel to forget him could compare to Leela's Friend as Leela does not care that Sidda is a past criminal)

The importance of playing (also compare to Leela's Friend as both children are only interested in play)

Bravery and viewpoints of nature (could compare to The Winter Oak as Savushkin loves nature and Ravi is unerved by it also the hot setting of Games Twilight makes nature seem dead and in the cold setting of The Winter Oak nature is very much alive)
