No. 1 comes up with an idea to get the village road mended, which is full of holes.
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. Use it to fix the road." What can a small boy do?
On Cousin Homework's wedding day, No. 1 still hasn't come up with a solution, but he does figure out a way to get everyone to the wedding. 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.
Fifth title in the series about a young African boy, set in Africa
