Loudoun County, VA (November 9, 2021) – MSG (Ret.) Charles “Chuck” Peterson, father of two toddlers and author of self-published Amazon best seller God Creates a Snake, has released the second installment in his God Creating Animals children’s book series. The new title, God Creates Penguins, was released on October 11, 2021.
Peterson has once again teamed up with illustrator Brian Russell, creator of Underfold Comics, to bring the new book to life.
“The series offers a wholesome look at animal creationism with a few adult jokes and puns mixed in for the parents,” says Peterson. “And for readers of God Creates a Snake, we even included a few Easter eggs we think they’ll enjoy.”
The book series originated from Peterson’s popular Twitter account, @NewDadNotes, where he uses his unique brand of humor to describe what would happen if animals had the chance to ask God questions about their specific designs. With a positive reception from the public, Peterson quickly grew his online presence to more than 100,000 followers across Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. From here, he decided to turn one of his popular tweets into something more. After proposing a collaboration with Russell, the God Creating Animals book series was born.
The series hasn’t been without its share of controversy. Peterson has faced questions about whether its cheeky portrayal of God could offend readers, a concern he takes in stride.
“I’ve had people tell me they don’t think God has a sense of humor,” he says, “to which I always ask, ‘Have you ever seen a giraffe?’ God definitely has a sense of humor.”
God Creates Penguins is available now on Amazon. To learn more, read additional content, or purchase merchandise, visit godcreatinganimals.com or follow @GodAnimalBooks on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
