9788189766757: The Little Hero: One Boy's Fight for Freedom

A young boy alone in the world, surviving off foraged scraps, he stumbled across a Bonded Labour Liberation Front rally. The organisation took him in, and he began tirelessly working to spread the word to other enslaved children that they too could be free. Iqbal participated in raids on illegal factories and addressed international conventions. He was awarded the Reebok 'Youth in Action' award and a scholarship to study law in Boston. But before he could start to enjoy the results of his hard work, his life was cut short by a hail of bullets from the gun of an unknown sympathiser with the carpet masters. Told by the bestselling ghostwriter of The Little Prisoner and Sold, this is an inspiring tale of what one boy can achieve and a gripping call to action to end child slavery.
