Independant Publishers group (www.ipgbook.com) has a great selection of
English to Spanish translations, but they also have a fairly wide variety
of Spanish native books, from picture books to novels.  I bought a series
of picture books by Antoon Krings from them for my year 2 Spanish students
to have a translation challenge, as these books are not available in
English at all.  The catalog tells you if the books is a translation or
not, but sometimes it is a translation from a non-English original text,
too.

This is my go to site for Spanish materials when I want something original.
