Welcome to the woods. It’s chaos in there!


Bunny and his friends Weenie the Squirrel, Pig (the pig), Action Beaver and Skunky the Inventor lived a peaceful life in the forest . . . until Monkey’s rocket crash-landed, and he decided to take over!


Now Monkey is causing mayhem, Bunny is determined to put a stop to it, and . . . what’s that? It’s an out of control shark tank, ruining a lovely picnic!

Jamie draws cute characters and then sets them free into ridiculous colourful worlds. His comics have delighted children for over 15 years, in the pages of national institutions such as The Dandy, The Beano, The DFC and The Phoenix. His long running weekly strip ‘Bunny Vs Monkey’ is still going strong in The Phoenix after four years, collected into three books so far. In 2015 he launched ‘Superhero Bunny League’ into the world through two OUP books, and his character Find Chaffy continues to explore new mediums (from two Scholastic books, to toys, to viral memes).

Jamie has also been given the reins on Doctor Who (creating over 50 enormous picture searches for both the Doctor Who magazines, also collected into their own book), been the full time writer and artist on Desperate Dan for five years, and also created and edits the free annual children’s comic ‘Moose Kid Comics’ – a love letter to the medium, and a call to arms for new talent.

Bunny Vs Monkey

A team of scientists has sent a monkey into space! And good thing, too, because he’s a mean, selfish, noisy, bullying little fur-bag. Dive into a classic tale of good versus evil in a zany, over-the-top virtual comic event that will have readers of all ages laughing out loud! Comics superstar Jamie Smart (Bunny VS Monkey, Looshkin) will show you how to create your own amazing characters… KS2 – 7+

Remember, just one livestream-license for your school will mean that you can live-stream the entire week of events into your classrooms!
