The No 1 Car Spotter

No 1 is a confident, resourceful character, my book corner is pleased to hear the rumour this may be just the start of great new series.

No 1 is a real feature of his village, whilst keeping up with his normal chores he also manages to become the hero by saving the day for Mama Coca-Cola, whilst also spotting cars - he is the No 1 spotter after all!!

This book is neatly divided in to four independent chapters, the quirky illustrations on every page bring the story and its' characters to life.  The text is engaging and brings to life the community living in an African village.  It brings to light dilemmas that all children can relate to, whilst also highlighting the cultural qualities of the village, with out being over sentimental.

My book corner really enjoyed reviewing this one.  I love books set in different countries - and to me this defines one of the joys of reading for me personally - enjoying a great story whilst also immersing myself in a different culture.

'Anna Hibiscus', also by Atinuke, has been named an Honor Book in the Boston-Globe Horn Book Awards in the USA which is among the most pretigious honours in the field of children's and young adult literature.  We, at my book corner, are heading out to grab that one next!  Look out for our review ....

My name is Oluwalase Babatunde Benson. But everyone calls me No. 1. That's because I'm the No. 1 car spotter in the village, maybe in the world!
No 1 is good at doing all sorts of things. He and his friends Coca-Cola gather nuts in the trees and keep the soft drinks cool in the river. And when the card breaks down and the villagers can't get their goods to market, No 1 comes up with the solution - and it's magic.
