There are lots of things we love. Cute kids, devoted dads, good triumphing over evil and of course, happy endings. Well, we've found a lovely story that has all of these things by the bucketload. goodtoknowers, prepare to feel all warm and fuzzy, we want to tell you about a very special little girl called Lila.
Lila loves telling stories. She'd rather sit down and make up imaginative tales and draw pictures of her characters than watch TV. She and her dad, Karl, spend hours concocting complex stories of aliens, magical creatures, angels and talking animals. It's kind of, 'their thing'.
Karl loved the book so much he decided to self-publish it. He and Lila talked about how people would have to pay to get hold of their book, but Lila didn't want to make any money from her work. Her school was raising money for a local charity, the Northern Ireland Cancer Fund For Children. Someone from the charity had come in to talk to her class about the work they did for sick children and their families, and Lila decided to donate all the profits to the cause.
Um, love her much?! Us too.
