about

“Funny, touching, tragic….A remarkable tale of corruption, child trafficking and civil war in a far away land—and one man’s extraordinary quest to reunite lost Nepalese children with their parents.”
—Neil White, author of In the Sanctuary of Outcasts

Little Princes is the epic story of Conor Grennan’s battle to save the lost children of Nepal and how he found himself in the process. Part Three Cups of Tea, part Into Thin Air, Grennan’s remarkable memoir is at once gripping and inspirational, and it carries us deep into an exotic world that most readers know little about.

After volunteering at the Little Princes Children’s Home in the village of Godawari in 2004, Conor Grennan eventually returned to Nepal to launch Next Generation Nepal (NGN), a nonprofit organization dedicated to reconnecting trafficked children with their families. He resides in Connecticut with his wife and two children.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Relatable and readable... This book is a tragedy, but at the same time, it is a story that gives a person hope for the future of Nepal. And the author is just a regular, American guy. I enjoyed that he doesn't shy away from talking about his cultural bias and his feelings of privilege while working in Nepal. This story isn't like many that depict the writer as outside of the story, or as better, somehow, than the rest. You can truly see the change that the auhor goes through while working with the children. Also, parts of it are totally hilarious, and super cute.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't put it down! My Mother and I both read this book. Once you pick it up, you will not be able to put it down. You will laugh, cry, smile and remember how lucky you are. This true story has it all, adventure, travel, terror and romance all wrapped up in one book. It is hard to believe "child trafficking" is still happening around the world. What a truly inspiring man. On his journey to find "himself", he helped dozens of children find their roots and families, and along the way he found "love".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inspiring read This book is very easy to read and hard to put down. The author describes his experience in sincere terms but without being mushy. Not everyone could do what this author did - leave his job and go help people in another part of the world, but this book does show what one can do if you are determined.I recommended this book to friends. It is good without being vulgar. It should be added to high school curricula.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inspiring read A beautiful and inspirational book on how to live, how to help yourself and how to help others. Through Connors storytelling I felt like I was right there beside him. I actually wanted to be there beside him while at the orphanage meeting and teaching the children. The scenery of the landscape, the emotions of the villagers and children in this books is so captivating. The beginning of a journey turned into a life long mission is absolutely inspiring and heart warming. I finished this book in one sitting! I also couldn't help but buy a copy for each friend for their birthday in 2009!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from make your life count A young man goes on a trip, wanting adventure. He drops into a small village in Nepal as part of that,to help out at an orphanage for a few months. It changes his life. This book shows that each one of us can do a few small things, and perhaps, it'll become a big thing. Small acts of kindness/ generosity/ love can go a long ways in making our world better - and it changes us for the better as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful Account In the book "Little Princes", Conor Grennan, shares his journey from volunteering at an orphanage in Nepal for three months to returning after a year to spend more time with the children and eventually take huge personal risks to return them to their home villages and reuniting many with families that didn't even know that their family members were still alive. This book was personally interesting to me as my daughter and her husband have also volunteered with a children's home in Nepal and have returned to start another home for children in Nepal. I found the book to be a great read; sometimes very funny, other times very sad and above all written from a humble and unpretentious point of view.
