Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

The plucky, troublemaking Akissi is back with her mischief on The Ivory Coast! This time, she has to keep herself from drowning, stand up to a bully, make peace with her arch nemesis--the prettiest girl in school, and evade a witch doctor's potion. <br> <br> Inspired by her childhood on The Ivory Coast, writer Marguerite Abouet takes readers on even more hilarious adventure in Akissi: Volume 2 . Lessons learned along the way include being friends with people you don't like, standing up for yourself, and dealing with the consequences of your actions.<br> <br> The high spirited and mischievous Akissi returns for more "girls will be girls" adventures on the Ivory Coast in these previously untranslated stories.
