When a boy is faced with a choice between two tracks for his future, an unlikely source sends him on an incredible expedition across a meadow– becoming a bug in the process. Forced to trust his instincts and follow his heart, he must complete his fabulous and terrifying quest before it is too late to return to the land of humans.
A fantasy of astonishing depth and resonance, Monk’s tale of self-discovery and escape from family pressures is as entertaining as it is fulfilling. His use of Marcel’s metamorphosis as metaphor exposes the weird and wonderful world that exists right under our feet.
Sans wizards, witches, or dragons, Strange Metamorphosis instead features dragonflies, a legendary tree, and a gallfly in one of the most extraordinary adventures you will ever embark on.
