My Babysitter's a Vampire Wiki

Benny, Ethan, and Sarah's reaction to Benny first getting the book.

The spellbook, which is currently in Benny's possession, was handed down from his Grandma and possibly farther in his family tree, although it is unknown if it is from his mother's or his father's side. Benny's Grandma had passed it on to him in the pilot film when she first informs him of his magical heritage. The book is written primarily in Latin.


As the spellbook has most of its contents in Latin, the spells will not work right if the Spellmaster mispronounces the words or not use the language correctly, or if they are inexperienced with the spells. We have learned that on many occasions, thanks to Benny's many mistakes with Latin pronunciation. This is also evident when Jane had once used it to try and cast a repair spell in order to fix her broken doll, but accidentally turned it into a living being.[1] That was caused by her saying a different type of spell. The user can also cause their book to disappear, as Benny did the first time he used it.[2]
