This chapter book for younger readers is an instant delight! Oluwalase Babtunde Benson - known to all as No. 1, No 1 car-spotter, that is, tells about his life in Africa and the passion he shares with his best friend - Coca-Cola - for identifying vehicles that speed by their small village and make them feel connected to the larger world of towns and cities. His family take a grumpy view of this hobby, but when their cart breaks down and they can't take their goods to market, No. 1 comes up with a clever solution. The story is full of memorable characters, and its humour is perfectly matched by the many black and white illustrations.
