While Keats forms a wonderful relationship with the manny, Lulu keeps careful record of everything the manny does wrong. These are the Manny Files. Throughout the book, a relationship is forming between Keats' Uncle Max and the manny, and at the end the reader learns that the manny is more to the family than just a nanny.
