The No. 1 Car Spotter Fights the Factory

By Atinuke
Illustrated by Warwick Johnson Cadwell

The sixth and final title in this brilliant series about the No. 1 car spotter by a renowned Nigerian storyteller.

Oluwalase Babatunde Benson is the No. 1 car spotter in the village – maybe even the world! And No. 1 is excited when he learns that a factory is being built in his Nigerian village. There will be jobs for the villagers, including No. 1's father. But strange things begin to happen: the goats become sick and the fish in the river are dying. What is going on? And can No. 1 put things right?

  • The sixth and final book in this upbeat, humorous and very charming series about a young Nigerian boy who lives in Africa.
  • Racing Reads are pacy and engaging first novels for the newly independent reader. Each book is extensively illustrated and the storyper- chapter structure is ideal for building reading confidence.
  • Atinuke is a world-reknowned oral storyteller and the author of the popular Anna Hibiscus series.
