Brent has spent a very long time now touring into libraries throughout New Zealand... He teaches the kids about cartooning and reading, and talks about his favourite authors, including Dr. Suess. One of Brent’s cartooning career highlights was (in 1998) touring a series of libraries in the Kapiti Coast with best-selling (and very inspiring) book author Margaret Mahy!! While she talked and read to the kids, Brent drew cartoons about her books and her lifestory...This was part of the annual Children's Book Festival.

As well as teaching in libraries, Brent also does live cartooning, comedy & storytelling there... And if you are talking to a librarian about what he does, you can tell them that he also teaches the librarians!! So, as well as the kids, they too can learn how to draw cartoons & have fun!!!
