Book Description

April 1 2006 Sherman's Lagoon Collection (Numbered)
After ten book collections and a treasury, great white shark Sherman and the Lagoonies celebrate 15 years of life under the sea with this new collection of creator Jim Toomey's daily cartoons and full-color Sundays.

In an imaginary lagoon near the island of Kapupu in the South Pacific lives a group of nutty but sophisticated underwater creatures-complete with neuroses that rival those of humans (also known as "hairless beach apes"). Their wet world, oddly enough, is not so different from our own.

Sherman, a great white shark, is a typical guy, and Megan is his ruthless but nurturing wife. Rounding out the aquatic crew are Fillmore the turtle, geeky fish Ernest, and macho hermit crab Hawthorne. Salty old Captain Quigley, who lost his leg to Sherman years ago, is hell-bent on seeking revenge against the shark.

Sherman and friends effectively reflect human behavior and occasionally must confront humans' encroachment on their unspoiled habitat. Activist groups have applauded this comic strip with a social conscience for promoting marine conservation.

Sherman's Lagoon has been syndicated since 1991, currently by King Features, and has a circulation of more than 200 daily newspapers on five continents.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fifteen Years Underwater May 18 2006
By Joshua Koppel - Published on Amazon.com
Sherman's Lagoon has been around for fifteen years and this giant treasury brings the latest strips and some reprints with Sundays in full color. Sherman and they gang are up to their usual tricks and some of the various story arcs include:

The speed reading contest

The trip to the Ganges

Hawthorne's Lagoon tour, coffe shop, health club, casino, bakery

The mystery of dead Roscoe

Sherman's talk show

Megan's baby

The Scotland trip

Barnacle the purple arthropod

And many more. So join the sharks, turtles, crabs and polar bear in a tropical paradise where walk on characters seem to get eaten very often.

5.0 out of 5 stars Laughs on every page! July 3 2006
By Naomi J. Reed - Published on Amazon.com
I'm a Sherman's Lagoon fan, so I may be a bit biased, but I found this Treasury hilarious!! They've certainly put the best bits in, I was laughing on every page! I also found it really good value for money - over 200 pages of top quality comic strips (Sunday strips were also in colour which was great!). Fantastic buy all round!!

5.0 out of 5 stars cute humor book Oct. 26 2009
By FloridaSunshine - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I keep several of the Sherman's Lagoon books in my guest rooms for the enjoyment of my visitors. They think it is great to have a book to look at that doesn't require getting involved in a plot line and a book you can easily look at for a few minutes and put down for another day. I like that the cartoons are relevant to our beach lifestyle here in Florida. The books contain cute clean humor that is best appreciated by adults and older children.

Can't say enough good things about Sherman's Lagoon. This is a laugh out loud book, and there are a lot of toons in this volume. If you have never read Sherman's Lagoon go with the first book to get some background on the characters then just go with the flow. After you are tuned into how everyone relates any one of the Sherman books are excellent.
