Published in English for the very first time, this bestselling French comic follows the adventures of a naughty West African girl.

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 for long! 

- Part of the Selection Officielle d'Angoulême 2011 Prize at Europe's largest comics festival.
- By the author of the critically acclaimed and hugely successful series Aya, with two hundred fifty thousand copies sold in France, translated into fifteen languages. Three books in the series have already been released in French, with a fourth currently in the pipelines.

"Strong stomachs are a prerequisite. Even the strongest will be left both queasy and sore from laughter." —Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW 

"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
