"Once upon a time there was a boy named Noah, but everyone called him Noah-No-Brain." This the beginning of Nira Harel`s book about a talented boy who spent all of his spare time on one single hobby: automobiles. He knew all the different types of cars, his room was full of toy cars, and when he was asked to draw, he of course drew cars. But people around him didn`t appreciate his skill. Until one day he got to prove it! That day, while Noah was waiting for his father outside a store, he saw a car crash into a motorcycle and then drive off. The motorcyclist was thrown onto the road. People rushed to him, and after an ambulance took him to the hospital, the police questioned people about the accident. Everyone started talking at the same time. But nobody could actually describe the car until a small boy piped up. He knew the make of the car, its color and even the first two digits of its registration number. Yes, that was Noah! And the information that he gave the police led straight to the hit-and-run driver.
Since then, everyone knows that there`s a smart kid living in the neighborhood, and his name is Noah!
