Helen of Sparta is not an ordinary girl. She longs for adventure, and doesn't want to be left out. She doesn't rely on her looks or her high position to get what she wants, but on her cunning and determination. On her journey from Sparta to Mykenae to Calydon and so on, she makes a few friends, but also some enemies.  Nobody's Princess

I really like Mo Willems' books for children, and the Kunffle Bunny series is a great one! He writes very simple stories that little ones can relate to.  Knuffle Bunny Free
