(OPINION) CP – Leading national retailers are selling a recently released children’s book that teaches children how to summon demons which have alarmed many parents. At least two retailers appear to have since stopped selling the book. Released in July, the book, titled A Children’s Book of Demons, is available in paperback and authored by illustrator Aaron Leighton, who describes himself as a “fan of all things occult.” As the holiday season gears up, the product is being sold by leading book retailers such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Books-A-Million. The book is marketed as appropriate for ages 5 to 10.
“Don’t want to take out the trash tonight? Maybe you’re swimming in homework? Perhaps that big bully is being a real drag?” the description of the book reads. “Well grab your colored pencils and sigil drawing skills and dial-up some demons!
