Book Description

Aug. 1 2005 Sherman's Lagoon Collections (Book 10)
Leave it to Sherman to make waves. This every-guy great white shark has something hilarious to say about everything from George Foreman Grills and "hairless beach apes" to soul-soothing meditation and that popular South Pacific Ocean pastime, American football. Like any good shark, Sherm is relentless in his hunt for laughs.If undersea creatures make you think "Nemo" you haven't yet had the chance to swim in Sherman's Lagoon. This watery world off the imaginary island of Kapupu in the South Pacific is home to a great white shark named Sherman; his wife, Megan; turtle buddy Fillmore; geeky fish pal Ernest; and Hawthorne, a macho hermit crab. The situations this crew manages to get into are definitely not Disneyesque.
This tenth Sherman's Lagoon collection includes all the "up-there" topics that "down-there" sea animals usually miss out on: things like which swimmers taste better, those in one- or two-piece suits; how to repair a dryer at 20,000 leagues; and where to find psychiatric help on a coral reef. You could say Sherman's just a regular guy with a slightly salty look at how things work.
Creator Jim Toomey excels at meshing the human and sea life worlds in a way that makes joke-cracking crabs and style-conscious sharks seem perfectly normal. This collection is sure to hook new fans and reel in longtime Sherman aficionados like never before.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sherman Hits Double-Digits and Has a Kid Sept. 20 2005
By Joshua Koppel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is the tenth Sherman's Lagoon collection and it is still going strong. The main theme running through this volume is Sherman becoming a father. From his first learning the news through trying to raise his kid, Sherman faces the world of fatherhood in his own unique way.

Other story arcs that run in this volume include:

Hawthorne the Handyman

The War of the Gods

The Carnivore Convention

The Lagoon's Mar Probe

Sherman runs for Mayor

Fluffy the Catfish

Filmore the Houseguest

Igby Iguana's Wild Island Tours

At ten volumes it is unlikely I can start any readers reading the series and those already loyal will pick this one up by reflex but if you haven't really had a chance to check out the strip, this is a good one to get started on. It is full of returning characters and clever plots. Check it out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun, sarcastic humor Feb. 25 2006
By A. NORRIS - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Bought this book for my ten year old nephew who LOVES Sherman's Lagoon. He liked this new edition just as well as the others. Sherman's lagoon is a great comic. We have the whole collection for our nephews who come and visit. If you love sarcastic humor, you'll like Sherman's lagoon.
