A 3rd grader named Keats lives in a busy family that has employed many nannies. None of them have worked out until they meet the Manny. The Manny is full of fun and creativity and is a new light in the household for everyone except oldest sister Lulu. She begins keeping a log of all the unconventional and (to her) embarrassing occurrences she can find to build up a case against keeping the Manny. Our main man Keats loves the Manny and does not want to lose him.
While I thought this book was very entertaining as an adult (who wouldn't want to have the Manny brighten up their life?)I think it would be confusing for a child Keats age. With my adult perspective I can clearly see that the Manny and Uncle Max are a couple. Keats is clueless, so either make it more clear by making Keats older or leave that relationship out of the book. It would still be a really great read and less confusing.

Best book ever so awesome!!!
