Beaver: "Check it out Steve! A book stall!"
Steve: "Books? Boring!"
Beaver: "You couldn't be more wrong Steve! Every book is like a doorway to another world where the only limits are those of your imagination!"
Beaver: "I mean, check out this copy of the Necronomicon. It's a grimoire of unspeakable evil -- still think books are boring?"
The book makes EVIL! and GRRR! sounds.
Beaver: "It's bound in human skin!"
Steve: "Cool! Let me see!"
Steve opens the book, green ghosts emerge with WOOOA, BLAAA and GEEE sounds.
The ghosts attack the bookmonger.
Bookmonger: "I should have been a fishmonger...!"
Steve TURN!'s the page.
The Bookmonger has been zombified.
Steve: "Nope: boring!"
Steve SLAMF!'s the book shut.
Beaver: "They also have a copy of the new Harry Potter."
Steve: "Is it bound in human skin?"
Beaver: "It sure is, Steve, it sure is..."
