The Metamorphosis by Peter Kuper

This illustrated retelling of Frank Kafka's classic novella is very good. With his dark and slightly-disturbing images, Kuper -- who, among other things, pens "Spy vs Spy" for Mad magazine -- captures the tragic story of Gregor Samsa, a travelling salesman who wakes up one morning transformed into a bug.

3 out of 5 stars
