i’m a graphic novel junkie.
it doesn’t matter the subject or age level;
i’ll devour it.
i especially love it when i see people of color in graphic novels.
Akissi by Marguerite Abouet will be a fun read for children of any color,
but it’s especially nice for young girls of color to read about
this cheeky, adventurous pig-tailed West African girl.
for those looking for a compelling but relatively simple read in French,
this book is also available en Français.
the author has another graphic novel, Aya,
the first of a series of comedic dramas for adults
which also has a female protagonist set in West Africa.
