The No. 1 Car Spotter and the Car Thieves Reviews
An easy to read story giving an insight into African life. For discussion are the parts written in dialect, some very philosophical sayings about rich and poor, and education and wisdom, and life in another culture. This book will be very appealing to car lovers and is a perfect introduction to the crime genre.
4 longer chapters, these are more integrated as one story than the previous books. No. 1 introduces himself and his friends in the first pages by tagging each one to a memorable event from previous books and forming them as "remember" questions.Chapter 1: Problem: Car thieves are using Coca-Cola's mom's akara house as a place to jump into other customers' cars. No. 1 tries ineffectually to stop them.Chapter 2: Problem: No. 1's solutions cause more trouble than they help. Chapter 3: Problem: No. 1 gets hijacked (accidentally) by the car thieves and then almost thrown out of the police station until a driver saves him by giving him a job.Chapter 4: No. 1 meets the police chief and works to convince him he is telling the truth before they can rescue the stolen cars.
This is set in a little village in Africa and the main character is known as 'The No 1 Car Spotter' as he is so good at spotting cars in the distance and this warns the others who can then start cooking an d when the cars pass, they stop because they can smell delicious food and spend their money!!!!Anyway a lot of cars are being stolen and despite trying to stop the thieves he finds himself getting into trouble as his plans are a little crazy. Then accidently he is searching behind the front seats of a car, when the thieves jump in and steal it (along with him inside it). He discovers their plans etc but when he tells the police they don't want to believe a little beggar boy ... that is until the professor says they ought to ....I can see this appealing to older primary children.
