Akissi is back with more stories of silliness and chaos – there's never a dull moment when she's around!

Our plucky young troublemaker Akissi is back with even more tales of mischief on The Ivory Coast! This time, she plays matchmaker with mixed results, tries to avoid moving to the snowy, wolf-infested wilds of Paris, and turns her hand to poetry – which stinks.

Inspired by her childhood in Africa, writer Marguerite Abouet takes readers on even more hilarious ad- ventures with the mischievous but loveable Akissi, who returns for more “girls will be girls” adventures on the Ivory Coast. Join Akissi, her crew of friends and her brother Fofana for all the silly fun in this brightly illustrated comic, published here for the first time in English.


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.
