Lila, The Revolutionary by William T Hathaway

Lila, the Revolutionary is a fable for adults about an eight-year-old girl-smart, charming, and tough as can be-who creates a world revolution for social justice.

No one ever told her she couldn’t end poverty and inequality, so she doesn’t doubt that she can Just Do It! Starting with the Nike shoe factory where she works. Like the boy in “The Emperor’s New Clothes,” Lila can see the reality that adults are blind to. And she’s not shy about pointing it out.
