Description


Akissi: Tales of Mischief brings together all the hilarious and heartfelt Akissi comics by Marguerite Abouet, the award winning author of Aya of Yop City.

Poor Akissi! The neighborhood 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!

Praise For…


"An unforgettable, boundary-busting, falling-over-funny collection."
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

"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

“While aspects of daily life in Côte d’Ivoire will be unfamiliar to many, Akissi’s antics will ring true to kids across the board.”
