Akissi: Even More Tales of Mischief

by Marguerite Abouet & Mathieu Sapin.
Flying Eye Books, 5+

Inspired by her childhood in Africa, Marguerite Abouet takes the plucky young troublemaker Akissi in 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. These hilarious adventure series come illustrated by Mathieu Sapin.
