My First Kafka: a kid’s book with macabre illustrations

All gloom and despair: that’s what Franz Kafka is known for with his novels and short stories, and the 20th century literary icon can hardly be said to have written any children’s tales in his life. Brooklyn-based writer and video game designer Matthue Roth therefore took it upon himself to adapt Kakfa for children with My First Kafka: Runaways, Rodents, and Giant Bugs, a book made more marvelous by London-based Rohan Daniel Eason’s fine macabre black-and-white illustrations. Somehow, Roth and Eason found a way to make Kafka appropriate for kiddo audiences.
