K Is in Trouble
K is the whole of what it feels like to be a child. You have no rights, no one cares for your comfort, no one believes you, and no one cares to try. K has many misadventures in this graphic novel but through it all he continues on, because what else can you do. The Edward Gordy art style is the Frank Kafka style surrealism that makes this feel like one of my favorite series growing up, A Series of Unfortunate Events. It helps that K goes through a series of unfortunate events. He does nothing the average child wouldn’t do, and he’s punished for it every time. This is the perfect book for little kids who know the world is unfair and want to commiserate with the protagonist. Recommended by Sameah
A boy named K must navigate a world of outrageously unkind adults in this hysterical, Kafkaesque middle grade graphic novel, with art reminiscent of James Marshall.
K is nice, polite, and always does as he’s told. K is also always, always in trouble.
No matter what he does or says, it seems there is someone ready to blame him for everything.
