Little Princes - in the light of the devastation in Nepal after the horrendous earthquakes over the last few months, this autobiographical journey of one man (Connor Grennan) to bring home the lost children of Nepal is a heart warming read.

Grennan left his well paid job in the States to head off on a journey of self-discovery. He spent his first month in a Nepalese orphanage where he learnt that the children there weren't really orphans. Their stories of being taken from their families hooked him and he spent the next two years of his life with one mission - return these children to their families.

An inspiring read - I wanted to jump on the next flight to Nepal.
