This review is from: Little Princes (Hardcover)
In November 2004, Conor Grennan was a young man with dreams of travelling around the world; drinking, meeting girls and having the time of his life. Little did he know that he would soon meet a group of Nepali children in the Little Princes Children's Home that would change his life forever. This true story spans around 4 years of Grennon's life, chronicalling his personal journey and his aim to help these trafficked children be reunited with their families during a civil war.
Grennon is an engaging writer and this adds to the incredible story. However it is the humour and joy of the children who are the stars of the book who share so much love despite having suffered such hardships in their short lives. Coloured photos are also included to really get a sense of the people and places Grennon describes. This is a fascinating read for anyone interested in the plight of children in foreign countries but is also a heartwarming story that restores faith in humanity. Another reason to purchase this book is that a portion of the proceeds go to Grennon's non-profit organisation, Next Generation Nepal (NGN).
