Book Description

Sept. 1 2008 Sherman's Lagoon Collections (Book 13)
Jim Toomey is "a breath of fresh water." --Washington Post

Lauded for sparking dialogue on topics relating to marine life, Sherman's Lagoon appears in 250 newspapers in 30 countries in 6 languages.

Collecting more than 42 weeks of Jim Toomey's Sherman's Lagoon, this collection transports readers to an imaginary lagoon near the South Pacific island of Kapupu, where a cast of coral reef critters live a charmed aquatic lifestyle.

Commenting on such timely issues as rising sea levels, degrading water quality, and environmental pollution, inhabitants of Toomey's nautical neighborhood include Sherman, an always-hungry, but otherwise typical kind of great white shark, and his witty pearl-wearing wife Megan, along with friendly Fillmore the turtle, geeky fish Ernest, macho hermit crab Hawthorne, and salty old Captain Quigley, who remains vengeful after loosing his leg to Sherman.

This is the 13th Sherman's Lagoon cartoon collection, in addition to two treasuries.

A year in the life of a great white shark and his lagoon friends receives black and white and a few color embellishments in one of the funniest comics ever drawn: a top pick for any collection serious about representing syndicated comics and top-notch productions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Comic Strip Being Published Today March 17 2009
By C. Kile - Published on Amazon.com
Jim Toomey is still a genius. He is the last great comic strip artist that we have today. Truly an original concept of seeing a shark and his underwater friends get into the zany situations with the kind of sarcastic, snappy humor that we don't get to see anymore. It's always a blast to see Hawthorn's latest business scheme or Sherman's next crazy adventure. This book is a must read to anyone looking for a good laugh.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sharks having fun July 3 2011
By Bruce Schafer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is great, easy to digest cartoon humor, kinda like other grand stuff like Mother Gooose & Grimmy. Of course, you don't need to have an analysis of the current economic, political and evironmental issues in your daily life. This stuff provides you the option of sitting back and ignoring all the other clatter as you chuckle in fits.
