About the Author

Jim Toomey was born and raised in Alexandria, Virginia. He launched "Sherman's Lagoon" in 1991 and was picked up by Creators Syndicate later that year. An engineer, a philosopher, a surfer, a scuba diver, and a sailor, Toomey lives in Annapolis, Maryland, with his wife and daughter.

He has been twice awarded the Environmental Hero Award, given by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration "for using art and humor to conserve and protect our marine heritage."

Format: Paperback
It'll never look the same again. We visited the Texas State Aquarium, in Corpus Christi- which happens to have a special exhibit of Jim Toomey's cartoons, with original drawings, used to raise awareness of marine conservation in kids. Fun for adults, too!
Who couldn't want marine conservation after becoming familiar with the inhabitants of Kapupu Lagoon? Sherman is a shark with, let's say, not too much in the way of brains; his mate, Megan, is much smarter - but has her weaknesses. Hawthorne is an irritable and irritating hermit crab, who wears a beer can rather than a shell. Hawthorne has a rather elaborate crab hole- Persian carpets, golf putting range - and is always dreaming up schemes to make more money. Fillmore is an endangered turtle, who can't find a mate, possibly because of the extremely bad poetry he writes. Other characters we see regularly include a polar bear who visits the Lagoon every year instead of hibernating; a computer-savvy fish who swims around with a laptop and hacks into important systems; a giant squid who always keeps his appointments; an orca formerly in a sea-entertainment complex, who can't quite cope with life in the wild; and the occasional herd of vegetarian piranha. There's also a couple of human characters once in a while- a fishing boat captain trying to catch Sherman and/or his friends, to use on the menu at his seafood restaurant; the people who run glass-bottom boat tours; and of course the hairless beach apes whom Sherman tries to lure into the water for lunch.
Every strip is funny; the messages about marine conservation, about cable lines under the ocean and other human incursions affecting sea life sneak in at you without detracting from the humor at all.

Sherman's back. Still eating most everything in sight. Still failing Megan in the romance department. Still losing his fights with the giant squid. And still hilariously goofy in the process. Weird, wonderful, and hard to describe, I suggest you check out some of the strips online (you'll have to search for them, Amazon won't let me include the URL) and, if you laugh hard, buy this book. If you laugh a little read a few more until you do laugh hard, then buy this book. If you have no idea why anyone would laugh at this stuff, better stick to Family Circus!

This book is again a phantastic collection of funny
and often very curious fish cartoon stories. Even the 4th
book is as good as the first one. The author projects
ordinary (and not so ordinary ;-)) everyday situations on
a couple of fishs around sherman the shark living in a
little lagoon at Kapupu Island. It is one of the best
cartoons and I think the best fish cartoon available.
For fans it's a wonderful reunion with Sherman, Megan,
Fillmore, Capt. Quigly, and all the others.
Have Fun!

HASH(0xa1b059fc) 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.

I love this collection of Jim Toomey's books...in fact, I like all his Sherman's Lagoon books.
