Jack had also written a few Children’s stories. Then inspired by something at his job with the county by something called a “MOO number” mixed with Jack’s love of comedy, in December 2009 with his friend Kevin Stockton, the first Joke and Coloring book Silly Cow! was published. This was followed by Silly Halloween! published in 2010, and Silly Kitty! in 2011.
