Cicada, by Shaun Tan


Cicada tells the story of a hardworking little cicada who is completely unappreciated for what he does.

But in the end, just when you think he's given up, he makes a transformation into something ineffably beautiful. A metaphor for growing up? A bit of inspiration for the unappreciated striver in all of us? Yes, yes, and more.
