Cicada   Shaun Tan is back with one of his finest works to date. The moving tale of an underappreciated cicada who (at what seems to be their darkest hour) initiates a most splendid metamorphosis. This is a sombre and yet  beautiful picture book; with an element of provocation that elicits a careful and nuanced response from both adults and children. We are passionate about this book; which pushes the boundaries of what we expect from children's literature - exploring important themes of difference, prejudice and transcendence.
