(OPINION) BIN – For parents looking to introduce their kids to devil worship, Walmart and Amazon are now selling a new children’s book entitled: ‘A Children’s Book of Demons’. In the ‘about‘ section, the publishers try to turn the act of summoning demons into a kid-friendly activity saying: “summoning demons has never been so much fun”.
The site categorizes the book as a “playful guide” to conjure demons to communicate with “the spirit”. The children’s product is listed for children ages 5-10 and “inspires” kids to “create demons of their own”. The book is a sort of coloring book whereby kids can draw demons using a system of sigils. As the Publishers Weekly text reads: Leighton integrates a hands-on craft element into this playful guide that invites readers to conjure gentle demons by writing their sigils, which serve as “a phone number” straight to the spirit.
The demons necessitate specific summons (a riddler named Corydon requires a sigil “drawn in bright red, the color of a clown’s nose–preferably while you’re giggling”), and express specific characteristics and abilities that range from pragmatic to gross. They include “Flatulus,” whose talent is passing gas; “Quazitoro,” an expert at finding missing objects; and “Spanglox,” “the best-dressed demon in the underworld,” who offers cutting-edge fashion advice. Leighton’s renderings of the multi-eyed, multiarmed, sharp-toothed demons are outlandish without being creepy, and the creative concept will likely inspire some readers to create demons of their own. Ages 5-10. (July) READ MORE
Wow! The devil is stooping to some really low tactics, trying to use women and children to do his dirtywork, wal mart should be ashamed!
Oh woe to you Walmart. Do you not have any morals or is it that you do and in this manner you are showing everyone your true intentions of whom you follow, the Devil? This is not some little kids coloring book, no matter how you or the author tries to sugar coat it. You are playing with evil fire and teaching kids that demons are not bad, but I’m sure you realize they are, or maybe you don’t know that yourself. Well let me assure you anything having to do with demons should not be sold in your book department. Nor anything including posters, clothing, candy, costumes, etc. which portray any evil entity. Turn away from your ways before it is too late.
