The No. 1 Car Spotter and the Broken Road Synopsis

Oluwalase Babatunde Benson is the number 1 car spotter in the village - maybe even the world! The road through No. 1's village is full of holes. There are no cars for No. 1 to spot and no customers for Mama Coca-Cola's roadside cafe. Mama Coca-Cola tries to get the road fixed but she fails. Grandfather says, No. 1, you have a No. 1 brain.

And when Mama Coca-Cola asks him to sell her goat at market, he returns home with two goats instead. Finally he has a brilliant idea - one he is sure will get the road through his village mended.
