If Buk Bilong Pikinini is happy to continue sponsoring a prize for work written for children in 2015 we might have to define the target audience a bit better.

This year we received quite a few excellent entries that were hard to place in any particular age range.

Maybe we should make the target reader audience in the 9 to 11 years category. That seems to me to be a formative period when the reading habit develops.

Sometimes we forget that the future of PNG (and anywhere else for that matter) lies with the children.

If we are serious about generating a national literature in PNG that is one area where we should be concentrating I think.

And the best way to make that happen is to make it possible for PNG children to read books written by PNG writers.

Thank you Michael. I think I've heard of that story before from a kids' TV show, either The Book Place or Play School. I will look it up.

Well done Iriani.

I liked the story, which reminded me of a childhood favourite of mine, The Hungry Little Caterpillar.


Thank you Arnold.

Congratulations Iriani for the win...

Thank you so much everyone for your congratulations! And thank you Jimmy, Francis, Euralia and Kela for the encouragements.

Congratulations, Iriani. Continue to write.

Congratulations Iriani.

This is a delightful story Irani. Congratulations. Keep up the good work. Keep on writing.

Congratulation Iriani, keep it up and keep writing.

Thank you Baka and Robin!

Congrats Iriani :-)

Congratulations Iriani and thank you Buk bilong Pikinini for sponsoring this award.

This is a very important group of people most times we over look trying to address everything else but the future of a nation is determined from how we groom our children.

Please continue your marvellous work in educating our children through books.

Congratulation, Iriani.

Brilliant, Iriani. Congratulations.

Congratulations Iriana. Congratulations BBP. Well done to all at the Crocodile Org Team.
