Discover Your Inner Hermit Crab: The Fifteenth Shermans Lagoon Collection (Sherman's Lagoon Collections) Paperback – August 3, 2010
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

These guys twitter, dine in fine restraunts, buy lottery tickets, play football, travel the world, (Mexico, and even Idaho!) and get into all kinds of crazy situations of the humorous type. This is a great cartoon, that has a big heart, and you may even learn a little bit about ecology during your visit here to this undersea universe. I've always believed that it would be really tough to be a fish, but I didn't know that these scaled scoundrels had some much fun.
"Sherman's Lagoon" is a funny strip, but I found DISCOVER YOUR INNER HERMIT CRAB to be a little lackluster. Hawthorne is always trying out some new scam, but in this strip he opens an optometry office, a tattoo parlor, and a health insurance office. Characters in the strip go to Kahuna not once, not twice, but three times to be turned into humans. It was just a little bit too much of the same thing over and over. Of course, there are some new things that happened. The "Ocean's Got Talent" and the Lagoon Film Festival were nice storylines. But there were also some storylines that were really far-fetched, such as when Sherman and Megan win the lottery.
DISCOVER YOUR INNER HERMIT CRAB isn't the best collection of "Sherman's Lagoon" comics and it is a bit repetitive. However, "Sherman's Lagoon" is a funny comic strip and despite the short-comings of this particular collection, the overall humor still shines through.
I like Sherman so much that I already purchased every previous collection, but don't wish to buy duplicate strips in a new order.
