Overview

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

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?
