About Us

SMARTER than JACK started with a series of books. Our goal from the start has been to entertain people the world over with stories about amazing animals and to raise funds for animal welfare organisations. We want to make people look at animals a little differently - and to celebrate the animals that they share their lives with. Read the story about how SMARTER than JACK came about.

You may be wondering how our books are created, how they are sold and what animal welfare organisations get out of it. We've included some frequently asked questions to help.

We feel it’s possible to run a successful business that is beneficial to customers and that gives back to the community. We want people to enjoy and talk about our books, that way ideas are shared and the better it becomes for everyone.

How you can help

We'd love to receive your animal stories for this website and for future books. If you feel that writing is not your forte, don't worry, it's the message in your story that really counts. See the ideas to get you started.

You can also buy books and other animal related products. 10% of what you spend (excluding postage) will go to your chosen animal charity. Click here to find out more.
