Though not my favourite book on magick, The Little Book of Pocket Spells is a convenient size to carry around, particularly when you’re travelling and don’t want to drag a large volume like the Element Encyclopedia of 5000 Spells around with you. It’s easy to slip into your handbag, or pocket. My copy is worn and bent from the many times that I’ve taken mine with me on holiday, or just out with friends or family.
Because it’s such a small book, The Little Boof of Pocket Spells summarises a lot of what is written in the larger books into one or two pages, such as the correspondences, the lunar cycle and candle magick. However the spells aren’t categorised in any sort of order, which makes it bothersome to find the spell you want.
Most, if not all, of the spells within this book are quick and easy to perform, provided that you have the necessary ingredients. And if you feel it necessary, you could add to these spells to make them more personal to you.
This would also make a great beginner’s book on magic and witchcraft. Also, the little cat printed in the corner of each right-hand page that wags its’ tail if you flip the pages like a flipbook is a nice touch, particularly for slightly older children from around twelve years.
