"Finally the atheist community will have a guidebook for revealing how random forces render all of our efforts ultimately futile," book author Jake Leblanc explained. "The ideal audience for this message of purposelessness is the young school-aged child, but the delightful illustrations will certainly please toddlers as they are gently introduced to the cosmic joke we call life."

Based on the large number of pre-orders for the book, Leblanc is already working on a sequel. "I haven't ironed out all of the details yet, but I can tell you that in the second book Pickles will be a little older, much angrier, and will be plotting to destroy Christmas."
