Bilingual English/Spanish. A classic Nicaraguan folktale: when Ambrosia gives her Uncle Nacho a new hat, he tries to get rid of his old one, but to no avail.

When Ambrosia gives her Uncle Nacho a new hat, he tries to get rid of his old one, but to no avail. No matter what he does, the pesky hat keeps coming back to him.

The book includes an account of the origins of the story.
