“One morning, as Gregor Samsa was waking up from anxious dreams, he discovered that he had been changed into an adorable kitten.” So begins the latest literary mash-up from our friends at Quirk Books, the ingeniously titled MEOWMORPHOSIS. It's been getting some great reviews, and the premise looks like a really fun update of the classic:

"If Gregor is to survive this bizarre, bewhiskered ordeal, he'll have to achieve what he never could before – escape from his parents' house," said Quirk. "Complete with haunting illustrations and a provocative biographical exposé of Kafka's own secret feline life, The Meowmorphosis will take you on a journey deep into the tortured soul of the domestic tabby."

Also, the trailer is insanely amazing. Check this out:
