Congratulations Mr B. Tingim yupla olgeta yet. Ex Paga.

Congratulations, Mr. Bina on your new books. Tur'ave!

Well done - it is another milestone in the literature of PNG.

It is for schools in PNG to use as resource books rather than novels should feature literature devices and questions in a comprehension method.

Baka is a born story-teller, one who is able and committed to documenting, in a realistic and sometimes humorous manner, the challenges and delights and the cultural diktats of day-to-day life in PNG.

The interweaving of tok pisin and tok ples within his stories adds to their authenticity and provides non-PNGan readers with a glimpse of what makes PNG cultures 'different'.

The underlying morality of his tales make them eminently worthy of a wide readership, in PNG and elsewhere, and I, like many others, hope that this will be achieved. Well done, Baka!

A fine achievement. Congratulations. The Education Department should now seriously look at promoting locally written books in schools.

Congratulations and well done Baka.
