About the Author

Jim Toomey's Sherman's Lagoon set out to sea in 1991, and today it is syndicated in more than 200 newspapers across five continents, including the Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Daily News, and Dallas Morning News. The strip has a fiercely loyal fan base and consistently ranks among the top third in comic-reader polls. In his spare time, Jim is committed to supporting efforts that preserve marine life. In addition to being a friend to the fish, he is an avid scuba diver and sailor. He lives with his wife, Valerie, in Maryland, on the Chesapeake Bay.

More About the Author

For the past 13 years Jim Toomey has been creating the daily comic strip Sherman's Lagoon, which appears in over 250 newspapers in North America, including the Washington Post, the Chicago Tribune, and the San Francisco Chronicle. It also appears in over 30 foreign countries, in French, Portugese, Spanish, Norwegian and Swedish. Jim has just completed his tenth book, entitled "A Day at the Beach," published by Andrews McMeel Publishing.

Sherman's Lagoon is a combination of his two life-long passions: drawing and the sea. Jim's been engaged in the former activity since he could hold a crayon, and his love affair with the sea dates back to his early childhood. The inspiration for the comic strip can be traced back to a family vacation in the Bahamas where he saw a real shark swimming in a remote lagoon. Jim became a certified diver at the age of twelve, and, as an adult, has logged dives all over the world, including Asia, Africa, the Mediterranean, Latin America, and extensively in the kelp forests of California.

I really enjoy Sherman's Lagoon and all the characters. I sent lots of funny books to my brother when he was stationed in Baghdad, and he said one of his sergeants was addicted to Sherman's Lagoon: he was more excited about getting another book than about getting home-made cookies! Now THAT's something!!

Sherman's Lagoon is one of those offbeat creations that appeal to many. If you are the kind of person that likes humor that causes you to look back at the earlier panels, this is a good one. I recommend it. Imagine Calvin (of Calvin and Hobbs) as he might appear as an adult.

the book sent had 3 full pages torn out. I don't mind wear and tear, but entire pages were missing. Watch out for this seller.
