Here We Go Again: The Eighteenth Sherman's Lagoon Collection


Here We Go Again: The Eighteenth Sherman's Lagoon Collection Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sherman’s Lagoon is an imaginary lagoon somewhere in the tropics, inhabited by a cast of sea creatures whose lives are curiously similar to our own. Through his comic strip, cartoonist Jim Toomey explores many of the issues that we face daily in our world on dry land. By putting them in a different context, he helps us laugh at ourselves. His characters attempt new business ventures, go on disastrous dates, try fad diets and read the latest best-selling books. But, they also have problems that are unique to fish. Should you bring shrimp to the holiday party? Will shrimp be there?

Sherman, the main character, is a great white shark who is completely unaware of how intimidating his species can be. He gets pushed around by the other characters, namely: Hawthorne the hermit crab, Fillmore the sea turtle, and his wife, Megan, who is another great white shark, of course.

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".
