The No 1 Car Spotter Goes to School by Atinuke
Walker Books ISBN 9781406342925
No 1 learns a lot from life around him in the African bush and especially from his grandfather. When he and his best friend Coca-Cola meet a young American boy they realise how different their lives are. No 1 dreams of going to school and is thrilled when the opportunity arises but he now has much less time with his grandfather - and some things he can only learn from his grandfather, sitting under the iroko tree. This is a delightful book about a charming character, with super illustrations. It is a gently humorous story, itself illustrating the power of story-telling.
