    a cartoon continent?

    Dear Teachers,

    I read this from Petropolis by Anya Ulinich:

    "He cringed, imagining her questions once she knew that her real grandpa hailed from Africa, a cartoon continent."

    What does "a cartoon continent" mean?

    Hi Eway,

    Without seeing more context, it's pretty hard to tell exactly what the author meant by "cartoon continent", but from what I can see it's something negative.

    I hope that helps.
