Scott P. Smith

Zaniac Book Series

As Scott P. Smith grew up moving back and forth between Texas, Tennessee, and Ohio, he discovered one thing that always remained the same in every school he attended and town he lived, books!  His love for Dr. Seuss, Shel Silverstein, and Maurice Sendak helped him to develop a love for language and a really big imagination. Which he still carries with him today.


Jack’s Backyard

Do you have a scurry of squirrels playing baseball in your backyard? Jack does – along with many other groups of adventurous animals you’ll learn about in this fun story of amazing discoveries! From a tower of sparkly, pink giraffes to an array of cartwheeling hedgehogs, Jack uses the power of his imagination to create a tale that delights his teacher and classmates alike!

View all of Scott’s work.

My grandkids love both Jack’s Backyard, and Whale of a Tale! We read them together every time they visit! These are wonderful stories and the artwork is bright and colorful. The grandkids Love them!
