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.
