Trickery at the Crocodile Pool and other children's stories from Papua New Guinea has been published to encourage and inspire young readers with tales of their homeland. The book is a collection of 33 stories, all written by Papua New Guineans. Some will make you laugh and some will shock but all will make you think, feel and imagine. The book is the result of collaboration between the Crocodile Prize national literary awards and the Paga Hill Development Company Limited. Since 2011, the Crocodile Prize awards have given Papua New Guinean writers a publishing platform and Papua New Guinean readers access to their own stories, poems, essays and more. The 2015 Award for Writing for Children was made possible with sponsorship from Paga Hill Development Company, as was this collection of stories. Editor Ben Jackson has close personal and business connections with Papua New Guinea through his company Jackson PR Associates. He also manages the Bougainville 24 blog, which itself showcases the talents of Bougainvillean writers who would otherwise struggle to be published.
