Akissi: More Tales of Mischief by Marguerite Abouet and Mathieu Sapin
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.
