The content of this book destroy any hint of positive outlook a child had about life. It will definitely influence the forming process of a child's personality (negatively), and will at least promote depression & anxiety.
This book subconsciously promotes the evil side of things and consciously opposes the good side of things.
This book will break down the good moral outlook of the reader.
In short ;reading it will cause behavior problems & aggression in children.
