An Illustrated Guide to Shark Etiquette
By Jim Toomey
An Illustrated Guide to Shark Etiquette is filled with the no-holds-barred, undersea humor that has made Sherman's Lagoon an international success. The popular cartoon features a dim-witted shark named Sherman, his sea turtle sidekick Fillmore, and an assortment of other coral reef critters who team up to battle the encroachment of civilization on their remote tropical paradise in the South Pacific. As isolated as they are, they still manage to deal with all of modern life's "conveniences" and issues, with hilarious results.
Sherman is, shall we say, not the sharpest fishhook in the tackle box. One minute he exasperates Fillmore with nonsensical ideas like video taping every moment of his day in case something happens. Then, when something really does occur—say the arrival of space aliens—Fillmore later discovers that all that was documented was the back of the cameras lens cap! Toomey has a remarkable talent for making a great white who's always on the prowl for a human snack into a lovable lump of a guy. This third Sherman's Lagoon collection offers another engaging assortment of comic strips and a wonderful good time for readers of all ages.
