The three volumes of the Akissi series by critically acclaimed author Marguerite Abouet are collected in this first English edition. Poor Akissi! The neighbourhood cats are trying to steal her fish, her little monkey Boubou almost ends up in a frying pan and she's nothing but a pest to her older brother Fofana... But Akissi is a true adventurer full of silliness and mischief, and nothing will scare her for long!

MEDIA REVIEWS
Compiled from a bestselling comics franchise in France, this import captures the hilarious misadventures of a township girl as she rewrites the bounds of African girlhood one comical short story at a time. * Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW *
The collection reads like Dennis the Menace meets Pearls Before Swine, set in West Africa - and may appeal to fans of both.This volume fills a gap in children's comics featuring African characters and settings. Highly recommended for middle grade graphic novel collections. * School Library Journal, STARRED REVIEW *
Utterly unputdownable. Based on Abouet's childhood memories of growing up in the port town of Abidjan . . . the rapid-fire, action-packed tales are wild and antic. The colors are electric - purples, oranges, turquoises and bright yellows. * Marjorie Ingall, The New York Times Book Review *
While aspects of daily life in Co^te d'Ivoire will be unfamiliar to many, Akissi's antics will ring true to kids across the board. * Booklist *
Akissi is a precocious, frustrated, funny and brilliant protagonist. -- Jess Andoh-Thayre * Global Literature In Libraries Initiative *
Sapin's richly colored artwork complements Abouet's tales, which bring to life universal aspects of childhood, illustrating the silliness, resourcefulness, and mishaps that are experienced all over the world. * Publishers Weekly *

“Laugh out loud hilarious”


This collection of comic shorts is utterly hilarious. The supremely likeable and naughty Akissi is a scrappy and confident little girl, getting up to no good in her town in the Ivory Coast with her big brother Fofana... More
