Poor Akissi! The neighborhood cats are pursuing her 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 fun, and nothing will scare her or keep her quiet for long!

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The vignette chapters give glimpses into Akissi's day-to-day life without needing to explain or justify, opening cultural horizons for young readers, who will identify with the feisty protagonist." - "The Horn Book"
Akissi was awarded a Kirkus Star!
Strong stomachs are a prerequisite. Even the strongest will be left both queasy and sore from laughter.

-"The Horn Book"
Akissi has a distinctive African feel [] The stories have a tendency to feel a little staccato in a similar way that many African stories are written [] It also feels kind of raw and earnest which I really love. [] I found this a very charming, fun read and I love the illustration. I want more Akissi stories []
