New Children’s Book Announcement

By Caroline Evari

I would like to announce the publication of my newly published children’s story book When I grow up which is now available in paperback on amazon for 6.20 US dollars

This book is a collaboration with Papua New Guinean female artist Clarisa Alu and poet Bradley Gewa. Inspired by traditional art, every character in this book represents a province of Papua New Guinea. It teaches children to dream big and helps them understand that regardless of their gender or ethnicity, they can grow up and achieve anything they wish for. When I grow up is suitable for early learners up to grades 4 students, and it’s my first independently published children’s story book with the assistance of both a Papua New Guinean artist and publisher.

Hard copies will be made available by mid June so if you would like to pre-order or purchase a copy for your child, you can reach me on email

  1. Let’s go up to the mountain

Published by Ples Singsing

Ples Singsing is envisioned to be a new platform for Papua Niuginian expressions of creativity, ingenuity and originality in art and culture. We deliberately highlight these two very broad themes as they can encompass the diverse subjects, from technology, medicine and architecture to linguistics, music, fishing, gardening et cetera. Papua Niuginian ways of thinking, living, believing, communicating, dying and so on can cover the gamut of academic, journalistic or opinionated writing and we believe that unless we give ourselves a platform to talk about and discuss these things in an open, free and non-exclusively academic space that they may remain the fodder for academics, journalists and other types of writers alone. New social media platforms have given every individual a personal space to share their feelings and ideas openly, sometimes without immediate censure. The Ples Singsing writer’s blog would like to provide another more structured platform for Papua Niuginian expressions in written, visual and audio formats while also providing some regulation of the type and content of materials to be shared publicly.
