Abouet, Marguerite and Mathieu Sapin. Akissi: Tales of Mischief.

“This is a graphic novel that really grabbed my attention immediately! The book also gave a little common sense too! At one point Akissi ( the little girl) gets lice and in one point she gets worms! It was a really hilarious story that I loved! The only downside is that ( besides from the chapters where she got lice and got worms) the book needed WAY more excitement in every part. And ( this is just my opinion) but I felt the ending could’ve been a bit better. I thought it was funny and some parts and that the characters very well went with the story line. I loved the setting they chose for the book. It was an interesting read because ( I feel) that usually graphic novels don’t usually have this type of ( almost) feel to them. 🙃😕😐😑😶”

Allen, Elise. Twinchantment.

“I really like this book because I think it’s well written, has really great characters, and I like the setting. I like how in the end one paragraph makes the whole book make sense, and everything clicks into place. I like how much logic is worked into the plot, and I like that it’s very unique and original. It’s possibly one of the best books I’ve ever read. I would definitely recommend this book.”
