Our favorite troublemaker is back in this graphic novel collection of wild childhood adventures set on the Ivory Coast by award-winning author Marguerite Abouet (Aya of Yop City) and artist Mathieu Sapin.
With the first volume selected as a Kirkus Reviews Best Book of 2018, Akissi is back for round three with more stories of silliness and chaos with her plucky crew of neighborhood kids--there's never a dull moment when she's around!
Marguerite Abouet was born in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, in 1971. Following the tremendous success of her comics Aya of Yop City, Marguerite Abouet now dedicates all of her time to writing. Akissi is based on her own childhood.
Mathieu Sapin was born in Dijon, France, in 1974. He studied in l'Ecole supérieure des Arts Décoratifs de Strasbourg before becoming a renowned illustrator for many children's magazines and publishers in France.
