Kafkaesque Children’s Literature

The following works have been described as Kafkaesque:

  • Animal Farm by George Orwell
  • Maggot Moon by Sally Gardner
  • Amphigorey by Edward Gorey
  • Coraline by Neil Gaiman
  • Alice In Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
  • The BFG by Roald Dahl

Then of course there is the book My First Kafka, which reimagines three of Kafka’s tales for kids.
