Synopsis

Oluwalase Babatunde Benson is the number 1 car spotter in the village - maybe even the world!



Trouble is brewing in No. 1's village - cars are being stolen from outside Mama Coca-Cola's chop house. No. 1 tries to catch the thieves by putting up roadblocks and making diversions. But things get worse. More cars are stolen and people stop going to the chop house. Soon Coca-Cola's mother will not be able to afford to send Coca-Coca to school. It's not long before cars are being stolen throughout the whole country! No. 1 - never one to sit back and let bad things happen - soon comes up with a better plan. He is now more determined than ever to catch those pesky car thieves!

Customer Reviews

No1 is great fun to read out loud to a younger child. Depicting life in a modern African village, there is no shortage of exploits and dilemmas to solve, and No1 does this with resourcefulness and humour. There is so much patronising rubbish out there for younger readers, but this is just what is needed as a remedy! More, please!
