OH MY GOD. This book, a small little read, is something else. Impossible to describe the feelings. Ten thumbs up.

Every once in a while, I like to read children‘s picture books. These were both great.

The tagged book turned out to be a little darker than what I was expecting

Um? Did I miss something? I was expecting more. Don't ask me what exactly but definitely more than I read. My score is actually 2.5 stars but I gifted half a star for the artwork.

This feature reinforces why I‘m here, but the best part is the teen ambassadors‘ reflection on Cicada. Listen to the podcast for mood & then read the article for a fuller picture.

SW-T Being coordinator of outreach and collections at Worlds of Words must be both a huge responsibility and an amazing one all at once! Loved the article 💕 Best to you and your colleagues on continuing to grow the collection. It sounds amazing! 2mo
RebL @SW-T Thank you. Even though it can be overwhelming, I enjoy the work & it‘s a beautiful space. Since this was recorded, I‘ve been promoted to Associate Director! 2mo
SW-T Congratulations! 🎉🎉🎉 2mo

I love this (adultish) picture book. Shaun Tan defies genres and just does what he wants and does it well. This book is actually quite dark, but has a solid happy ending. Definitely worth checking out.

A powerful fable of conformity and corporate culture. Tan's artwork, as usual, is stunning and the story will resonate with many readers, especially older ones. Highly recommended.

Jee_HookedOnBookz Love his illustrations! 4mo

Shaun Tan has a way of breaking your heart and putting it back together in his beautifully illustrated books. Cicada is no exception.

For fans of picture books, this is a gem. On the penultimate page I burst out laughing and then directly to tears. Wow. If you don‘t know the author Shaun Tan, as I did not, look him up!!!

Bradleygirl I want to read this so bad! My library system needs to get on it 5mo
LRSmith I‘m now on a Shaun Tan kick and reading everything he wrote/illustrated. I think he‘s an illustrator for our age much as Rackham and Nielsen were for theirs. I hope your library gets it soon! 5mo
