Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
From the visionary Shaun Tan, an inspirational story for older picture book readers and beyond<br> <br> 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.
Cicada is overworked, under appreciated, and generally discriminated against--but after seventeen years he gets to return to the forest, and laugh at the humans.
