The No. 1 Car Spotter and the Firebird (Paperback)

£5.99
Usually despatched within 2 days.

Synopsis

Oluwalase Babatunde Benson is No. 1. He's the No. 1 car spotter in his village - probably the No. 1 car spotter in the world!



This is the second book in this series about the irresistible No. 1, whose hobby is car spotting but who is also good at solving all sorts of problems for his village. What happens when a great-spotted leopard enters the compound to steal the goats, or when the river floods the road and a wedding party can't get across? What happens when the new modern house Mama Coca-Cola thought she wanted turns out not to be the house she wants after all? Who comes to the rescue each and every time? Why, it's No. 1, of course! But can he also make the fabulous Firebird stop in his village?

Customer Reviews

My 5 year old and I discovered No1 after we discovered Anna Hibiscus, and it's a different kettle of fish. Whereas Anna lives in a big African city, No1 lives in a village. What a great introduction to Africa for children who've never been there. No1 is a spunky kid whose issues in each chapter are mostly about how to live with and get along with others in the village, and solving problems as a community. The car-spotting element is kind of incidental, mostly. Lovely.
