Daniel Travers, a cautious aspiring cartoonist, sets out to visit Eurodisney with his firebrand teenage cousin, Daphne. Daphne is full of inventive ideas for sabotage.

‘The Cartoonist is a rare and wonderful thing: a storming good read, more subtle than Fight Club and packing a far harder punch.’
– Big Issue

‘There’s something timeless and touching about Daniel’s longing for a real experience in a fake world.’
– Guardian

‘The Cartoonist is a wonderful book – hilariously upsetting from beginning to end.’
– Harry Mathews

‘Beard should be applauded for so thoroughly biting the Disney hand; at his best he is very vicious.’
– List

‘The Cartoonist hones in on the dark, corporate side of Disney’s magical kingdom …..  high-quality, light-handed satire.’
