Car spotting is the only hobby in Oluwalase’s small African village, and he is No. 1 at it in the village – probably in the world. No. 1 can spot them before he sees them from the sound of their engine. No. 1’s Grandmother and Mama think car spotting distracts him from his share of the work, but No. 1 can spot cars whilst he carries the yams from the field and  collects firewood.

The No. 1 Car Spotter is set in Africa but there’s much in this book for boys and girls in the UK to relate to, such as having to help with chores, negotiate tricky family situations and problem solve. No. 1 comes to the rescue each and every time his family or the village are in trouble!
