Jim Toomey is "a breath of fresh water." --"Washington Post" * Lauded for promoting marine conservation, "Sherman's Lagoon" appears in 250 newspapers in 30 countries in six languages. More About Yarns and Shanties (And Other Nautical Baloney) Collecting more than 42 weeks of Jim Toomey's "Sherman's Lagoon," this collection transports readers to an imaginary lagoon near the South Pacific island of Kapupu, where a cast of coral reef critters battles the encroachment of civilization. * Inhabitants of this nautical neighborhood include Sherman, an always hungry and otherwise typical great white shark and his witty, pearl-wearing wife, Megan, along with friendly Fillmore the turtle, geeky fish Ernest, macho hermit crab Hawthorne, and salty old Captain Quigley, who remains vengeful after losing his leg to Sherman.
