The plucky, troublemaking Akissi is back with her mischief on the Ivory Coast! This time, she has to keep herself from drowning, stand up to a bully, make peace with her arch nemesis—the prettiest girl in school, and evade a witch doctor’s potion.
Inspired by her childhood on the Ivory Coast, writer Marguerite Abouet takes readers on even more hilarious adventure in Akissi: Volume 2. Lessons learned along the way include being friends with people you don’t like, standing up for yourself, and dealing with the consequences of your actions.
The high-spirited and mischievous Akissi returns for more “girls will be girls” adventures on the Ivory Coast in these previously untranslated stories.Published by Flying Eye Books, 2019, softcover, 176 pages, 8.5 x 6.4 inches. Ages 8–12, grades 3–7.
