The title refers to Carlos's nickname for his grumpy uncle, who admits he is too afraid to learn "el Blah-Blah," or English. But the man's outlook turns sunny when he and Carlos make a deal: Carlos will teach him English and his uncle will teach him the old stories of Mexico—in Spanish. Ages 5-9. (Feb.)
