“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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Grennan’s work is by turns self-pokingly humorous, exciting, and inspiring.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “[Grennan] details the incredible stories of families caught in a civil war, frightened and anxious about the future of their children, and the endearing resiliency of the children themselves, many of them traumatized by war, enslavement, and separation from their families.” 

    Booklist

  • “With an animated voice, Conor Grenann adds another level of depth and poignancy to the story of his efforts to help Nepalese children…In narrating the book, he conveys a palpable sincerity in his tone and emphasis. In particular, one can hear the smile in his voice when he relays anecdotes about the children.”

    AudioFile

  • “Grennan is the rare author who can aptly and skillfully tell of his own awakening; he beautifully and melodiously renders the many accents he encountered along his journey. Listeners will be moved; for anyone interested in Nepalese history, humanitarian work, and meaningful self-betterment.”

Listener Opinions

    " Highly recommended for the adoption reading challenge, though as with several other books I'm maybe stretching the "adoption" definition a bit. This is one (straight, white, American) man's story of how he got involved with an orphanage in Nepal and then ended up starting a foundation to help reunify the kids in that orphanage and other trafficked Nepalese children with their families. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 BeccaJane | 2/11/2014

    " LOVED everything about this book! HIGHLY recommend. I have been to Kathmandu and trekked the Annapurna circuit, so the Nepali people have a special place in my heart. I LOVED reading about the amazing work Conor and his colleagues did for the Nepali children. We need MORE people like him in this world. Making a real difference. What a wonderful book! I bought it on a whim for my birthday, and I am so glad I did! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margo | 2/10/2014

    " Another book that introduces us to a country rarely in the news, whose inner turmoils the news rarely covers with children whose plights we really get to know. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim | 1/28/2014

    " A nice heartwarming story of the recovery of stolen Nepalese children, from their rescue and care to the discovery of their families and reestablished communications. It is appaling what some people do to children for financial advantage. I felt for the parents, who were often duped into believing what they were initially doing was for the benefit of their children, only to lose contact with them. It is hard to imagine the continued poverty and isloation in many parts of the world. It is also encouraging to know that there are many people who give theirselves to humanitarian efforts all over the globe. This story ends well, while so many others don't. I hope the book succeeds in garnering more attention and funds to improve life in Nepal and other impoverished nations. I think this book is better than THREE CUPS, and hopefully more truthful. "

    " Excellent. Seldom does a nonfiction book become so engrossing that I can't put it down. This one did. I loved how real and not preachy or perfect Connor is. I see my world differently. Thanks Connor Grennan for sharing your story and the children's. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mckinley | 1/25/2014

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alesa | 1/11/2014

    " The author has a very friendly style, and does a great job describing his adventures (and the deep love he developed) working with "orphans" (who weren't really orphans at all, it turned out) in rural Nepal. It was a bit like Three Cups of Tea, minus the hagiography. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lailee | 1/10/2014

    " I picked up this book because I thought I was going to learn about children of Nepal, but all the author could talk about was himself, so now I know all about Conor Grennan and not much about the children ! Is that a good read? I'd say no. "

    " This is a touching story of the lost children of Napal taken and used by child trafficers and the rescue of some of them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stepha | 12/9/2013

    " This easily could have gone the way of "eat, pray, love" (barf) but he keeps his ego in check and sticks to the facts. Amazing story of reunion between trafficked Nepali children and their families. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joanie | 12/4/2013

    " The writing style (or maybe the author himself) wasn't my favorite, but his story and his work in Nepal are inspiring and make this book well worth the read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Spencer Torrico | 11/10/2012

    " This is the best book I've read in my entire life. The first book that actually made me tear up once I had finished it because I felt like I was part of the story, and it was over for me too. Short and simple: don't believe me, pick this up for yourself and see. You won't regret it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deb Holden | 8/20/2012

    " Since I work with many Nepali students at the university this book had great interest to me. It's a wonderful read. I hope others will read it to become aware of the difficulties in Nepal, similar to the plight of Afghan and Pakistan parents. Heartbreaking and Heartwarming at the same time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Arielle | 6/29/2011

    " A good story of a man who opens an orphanage in Nepal. Did a good job of explaining what happened during the Maoist Revolt. However, he talks way too much about his girlfriend/wife and the book is a little self indulgent. "
