the one I’m least uncomfortable with is the placing of some kind of warning on the book, noting that it is linked to the deaths of at least three children
I'd imagine there are quite a few books that might need similar stickers - imagine the one for Mein Kampf, or many of Lenin's books...
If you're going to put a warning sticker on Lenin, what about Adam Smith?
Further to the Fairfax photo fiasco story, Paul Thompson is in The Press today:
Y'all should try the Bible. It instructs people to murder their children when they talk back, murder (or forcibly marry) rape victims, keep slaves and kill them if they don't submit, kill any uncircumcised men, kill people who reject god, and unsurprisingly has been used to justify the murders of hundreds of millions of people over recent centuries thanks to it telling you to kill everyone who reads it the wrong way.
Obviously a manual for torturing children is a bad thing, but you're going to need an awful lot of stickers on things if you set the bar that high, and I recall putting things on the Koran is officially frowned upon, with even marking the Torah as a manual of criminal instruction and not for children is unlikely to go down well when you think about it. With the genital mutilation of babies and ritual murder of apostates and shellfish eaters and people who mix fabrics and various others detailed.
