Description

In this inspiring story, young Carlos learns that change effects everyone, even his uncle. Uncle Tomas does not speak English and does not adjust well to his new life in Los Angeles. To him, English is "El Blah-blah," and he is frustrated and ashamed by his inability to communicate. He is always grouchy — like a thunderstorm about to break. But Carlos is held spellbound by his stories about old Mexico and the tongue-twister gods. How can this brilliant man be afraid like Carlos was when he first went to school and couldn't speak English very well? In time, Carlos and Uncle Tomas form a partnership, Carlos teaching Uncle Tomas English and Uncle Tomas teaching Carlos about his ancestors.

Uncle Rain Cloud is a heartwarming story of friendship and courage told in rich, poetic language and given dramatic spirit by Fabricio VandenBroeck's vivid, expressive illustrations. The colors and styles of the Aztec culture bring the ancient gods alive in the imaginations of the readers.
