Item #: SCP-ES-028

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: The object is to be stored inside a safe in the Site-34 Storage Room. It must be made of hardened steel and be fire resistant. Its use is limited to testing and to Class-D personnel only. It requires at least Level 2 Clearance or higher, and a signed authorization from Dr. ██████ Saito (who has the password to the safe) to proceed with experimentation. Said password will be changed weekly.

Description: SCP-ES-028 is a horizontal, yellow, soft cover children's learning book, titled "Dr. Wondertainment's Fun Spelling and Grammar" using the "Comic Sans" font and featuring an illustration of a dog on the front cover, containing 105 pages. It is intended solely to improve children's spelling and grammar skills. Its content is attractive and illustrative for children, and includes motivational phrases, humorous drawings, and some jokes and puns in order to encourage them to complete the activities throughout the book.

When the object is given to a child between 6-12 years old, the activities1 may include correcting typos, building sentences, replacing slang terms, correcting broken sentences and other grammar problems. Upon completion of the activities, the spelling and grammatical knowledge of the subject improves by 50%, and at the same time they are able to understand all the grammatical rules, becoming able to write complex and elaborate essays, theses and, despite not having had previous knowledge, handle scientific terms of each suggested topic. When asked about how they acquired this knowledge, the subjects always give negative answers regarding the knowledge acquired and never keep such information. Once the book is completed and closed, it will need 24 hours to have new pages again.

If SCP-ES-028 is answered by a teenager between 13-18 years old, the number of pages ranges between 514 and 1,115 (depending on the subject's grade in school). The content of the book also changes, lacking attractive content, and focusing on a serious and mature setting. Although the test subjects report it as boring and very tedious, they will try to complete at least 50% of the activities, however, their learning level decreases by 10% and they lack the anomalous knowledge presented by child subjects, being useless in the aforementioned tasks.

SCP-ES-028 has a cognito-hazardous effect on adults, inducing in them a compulsive desire to complete every single activity, and the number of pages increases (it has been documented that it can reach up to 10,000). Those affected are deprived of sleep and any other kind of activity until the object's exercises are completed. All test subjects, regardless of their previous degree of education, have difficulty performing the activities2 of SCP-ES-028, and along with the aforementioned reason, they die of dehydration and/or starvation long before they finish 70% of the object. If a subject is prevented from finishing the activities, they will enter a choleric state3 for 4 hours, physically harming anyone who tries to remove them from their "work". After this time, the subject will calm down, but may present one or more permanent conditions such as:

  • Dyslexia
  • Amblyopia
  • Dysgraphia
  • Astigmatism
  • Ectropion/Entropion
  • Stye
  • Strabismus
  • Lagophthalmia
  • Epiphora
  • Xerophthalmia

Subjects who underwent exposure to SCP-ES-028 are also affected by delusional disorders, either of the grandiose type (believes they are the person with the best spelling/calligraphy, even though they never were, or stopped having good spelling/calligraphy) or of the somatic type (believes their eyes are malformed because they see mild or severe misspellings in any item with words or sentences in it).

Recovery: SCP-ES-028 was recovered from the home of Dr. ██████, following a report from HR stating that he had not been on site for five days. When a response team was dispatched, they found the doctor with bloodshot eyes, spasming and smelling like [REDACTED], surrounded by it. The team grabbed Dr. ██████, but he struggled and threw punches, kicks, bites and profanities at the team while shouting "Let me finish! Let me finish proofreading that book!" While the doctor was being transported to the Site-56 Medical Wing, the team captain quickly closed the book and secured the item. Following a search, a teared package was recovered, addressed to the son4] of Dr. ██████, along with a note (see the Addendum).
