Cicada is a book that conveys a deep and saddening emotion with only a few short lines to a page. In this illustrated short we meet Cicada, a hardworking and underappreciated employee of seventeen years that is bullied and poor. Instantly you're feeling so sad for the poor Cicada and worried about his well being but he has his own story to tell. I loved how this book progressed in such a short amount of space and words and it's sure to be another favourite from Shaun Tan.
