Dubbed a “paranormal parody,” A Children’s Book of Demons aims to teach small children how to summon demons by telling them the names and sigils of demonic entities – sigils being the symbols used in magic, or the pictorial signatures of actual demons.
Published by Koyama Press, based out of Canada, A Children’s Book of Demons contains black and white images of demons that children can color, as well as cartoon images and other attractive elements designed to lure innocent kids into the world of the occult.
The book’s author, Canadian illustrator and occultist Aaron Leighton, describes himself as “a fan of all things occult.” The Toronto resident has written other occult books, including Spirit City Toronto, and says he likes to spend his free time “wrestling with a black cat,” which is pictured on his Facebook profile wearing a black, pointy hat.
A description of A Children’s Book of Demons on Amazon asks children:
“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! This paranormal parody is filled to the brim with funny spirits more silly than scary!”
The targeted age range for this 48-page demonic book is 5-10 years, with grade levels ranging from kindergarten to fifth grade.
