Don’t want to take out the trash tonight? Maybe you’re swimming in homework? Perhaps that big bully is being a real drag? Well grab your coloured pencils and sigil drawing skills and dial up some demons! But be careful, even if these spirits are more silly than scary they are still demons.
I have to admit, while I haven’t read it (it’s out of stock), I disapprove. It might even be a funny read. For grownups.
But this book is marketed for “Age Range: 5 – 10 years.” I think the last thing parents should be encouraging in small children is the idea that they can and should be calling up evil beings to prank and torment people just for the hell of it, without consequences.
Not that I think there’s a danger of kids actually summoning demons. I’d be vert surprised if any of those “spells” is at all effective. But I really don’t want them taking the concept and applying more effective summonings. Because there are some.
Material Component: One cash-purchased, pre-paid cell phone.
You’ll need the true name and location of your target. Then you “dial up” 9-1-1, and speak the magical incantation:
Yeah, yeah. This is [target’s true name]. I just killed them all! And when the effing cops get here, I’ll get them, too. ‘Cause I’m tired of their shit, harassing me all the damned time.
911: Sir, what is your location?
You know where I’m at! Your cops are always watching me. Now I’m watching back.
911: Sir, I need your address.
I’m at [target’s address], and you know it!
And demons promptly appear and wreak your vengeance on the poor sucker.
That’s why I disapprove of the book. It teaches kids that inflicting the forces of evil on other folks, without placing themselves at risk — no consequences — is just clean fun.
