Great achievement. You have & will educate a multitude of kids.

Fantastic! Awesome!

Thank you Daniel, Michael, Arnold & Jimmy!

Thank you, Keith, for editing the article! It flows and sounds so much better.

Congratulations on your tireless achievement. It's great for our kids to read.

Sir Paulias Matane once said in one of his letters to me, 'Its always a good feeling to see your work come out as a book'. And indeed I had that feeling when my first book came out. I am sure it will be no different for you too. You said it all.

When 'Oa the Grasshopper and Kaipa the Caterpillar' first appeared in PNG Attitude I knew the Children's Writings Award will go to that story and indeed you took out that prize. Congratulations on your recent achievement in converting that story into a book.

Perfect. It doesn't get any better than that.

Well done and congratulations!

Congratulations Iriani. I will definitely get a copy for my children when I am next in POM city.

Its a pity you did not get to meet the late Marion. Like sub-editors who craft a story before its read in the morning, many people work behind the scenes to get a book published.

I must applaud Buk Bilong Pikini for sponsoring the Crocodile Prize Children's Stories category in 2014 (in 2015 and 2016 it was Paga Hill Development Company which took over when BbP pulled out), for publishing Iriani's book and for working towards improving literacy in PNG.
