Our plucky young troublemaker Akissi is back with even more tales of mischief on The Ivory Coast! This time, she plays matchmaker with mixed results, tries to avoid moving to the snowy, wolf-infested wilds of Paris, and turns her hand to poetry - which stinks.
Inspired by her childhood in Africa, writer Marguerite Abouet takes readers on even more hilarious adventures with the mischievous but loveable Akissi, who returns for more "girls will be girls" adventures on the Ivory Coast. Join Akissi, her crew of friends and her brother Fofana for all the silly fun in this brightly illustrated comic, published here for the rst time in English.

-The Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States
"If you've yet to experience Abouet and Sapin's depiction of Ivory Coast life I cannot recommend this series more highly. In these most difficult of times books like Akissi are a beacon of joyous light in the darkness of reality."
