Thank you all for your sweet compliments. I am humbled and at the same time wish to thank Keith and Phil for the brilliant initiative, the Crocodile Prize, that has unearthed some of PNG's best authors and poets.

PNG - we have an assignment to get the whole nation to be interested in reading and writing and the Crocodile Prize is the greatest motivator.

Simbu has started the Simbu Writers Association in line with this motivational drive especially to get students aligned and interested.

Let's see which other provinces will follow suit.

Jimmy is one of a kind. I have to say this that Simbu is lucky to have him. Those of us from a distance stand in awe at the unique creative force who is churning out one inspiration after the other.

A fine example of an "elder" teaching by example. Congratulations Jimmy. I hope teachers use the book to encourage students.

Yawagle! Ana-magraaaaa...

Congratulations Jimmy...wakai we.

Great job Mr. Bushman.

The Simbu mountains are singing and I can feel it.

Kera, congratulations on the publication of your well oiled poems. This can raise the work of SWA up there. Wakai wo!

Congratulations Jimmy!

Indeed your work inspires those like myself who just set foot on the scene.

Congrats Bush Poet.

Congratulations! Name, you put SWA on the chart. Ku high school is happy to facilitate the launching of your book! Chipu wakai weh!

Congratulations brother Jimmy.

Akra Jimmy, your creativity, time and commitment behind the curtains has now come to fore in a big way in a form of a book. Congratulations!

Well done Jimmy and congratulations!

Look forward to getting myself a coffee.

Another milestone in the publication of creative writing from the Simbu. Well done, Jimmy.
