Oluwalase Babatunde Benson lives in a small village somewhere in Africa. He’s known as “No.1 car spotter” by friends and family because he can identify every make of car that goes by on the busy road that passes the village.

Divided into four self-contained chapters, this first in a series by the author of the acclaimed Anna Hibiscus series, chronicles No. 1’s everyday adventures, from better serving customers at Mama Coca-Cola’s roadside stand to (unwittingly) helping his father find a new job.
