Confessions of a Swinging Single Sea Turtle: The Fourteenth Sherman's Lagoon Collection (Sherman's Lagoon Collections) [ペーパーバック]

Jim Toomey




What happens in Sherman's Lagoon doesn't always stay in Sherman's Lagoon. In this, the fourteenth collection of Sherman's Lagoon comic strips, we examine the once-taboo subject of sea turtle courting rituals and conclude that, although sea turtles may be remarkable navigators, it's a cruel exercise in Darwinism when they show up at the right place without the right pickup line.

With 280 strips featuring the adventures and misadventures of Sherman the great white shark and undersea entourage, Confessions of a Swinging Sea Turtle gives fans of the strip a much-needed dip in Sherman's Lagoon.


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.”

5つ星のうち 4.0 A Shark and a Turtle Can Be Friends 2010/4/15
投稿者 tvtv3 - (Amazon.com)
First syndicated in the early 1990's "Sherman's Lagoon" is a syndicated comic strip that now appears in over 150 newspapers worldwide. Most of the action of the strip takes place in the Kapupu Lagoon, home of Sherman, a great white shark; his wife Megan, their son Herman, the sea turtle Fillmore, the scheming hermit crab Hawthorne, and other underwater creature characters. CONFESSIONS OF A SWINGING SINGLE SEA TURTLE is the 14th "Sherman's Lagoon" collection. Some of the stories in the collection include the lagoon's attempt to "go green"; Fillmore's annual trip to Ascension Island in an attempt to find a mate; Hawthorne's stint as a talk radio host at K.R.A.B.; Sherman's defining and death; Sherman and Megan joining a country club; Sherman getting hit in the head and believing he's a superhero; Sherman and Ernest meeting Triton; and Sherman and Fillmore visiting Walden Pond.

I liked the book. "Sherman's Lagoon" isn't run in many papers locally, but I do read the strip whenever I come across it. As far as comic strips go, "Sherman's Lagoon" is better than average. The humor usually isn't as biting as "Pearls Before Swine" and though it has a sitcom-type feel to it, it's usually more current and not as situational as "Hi and Lois" or "Family Circus". Fans of "Sherman's Lagoon" will want to look at CONFESSIONS OF A SWINGING SINGLE SEA TURTLE and those who enjoy good comic strips will probably enjoy it, too.
5つ星のうち 5.0 A lovely set of lively and fun encounters between sea life and humanity evolves 2009/11/20
投稿者 Midwest Book Review - (Amazon.com)
Any fan of Sherman's Lagoon already knows there are numerous comic strip collections - but may not realize that Confessions of a Swinging Single Sea Turtle represents the 14th such gathering. Black and white and facing color pages of cartoon strips make for an outstanding gathering with a focus on not just a lonely sea turtle looking for love, but other Sherman underwater characters. A lovely set of lively and fun encounters between sea life and humanity evolves in a collection highly recommended for any general-interest library.
5つ星のうち 5.0 Jim Toomey never disappoints 2010/3/7
投稿者 Sig - (Amazon.com)
I own and have read every single book of the lagoon series and each and every one is very funny and well written. The animals come to life and you can picture life that day in the lagoon with all the wacky characters. If you've never read a Sherman's Lagoon book, order one from Amazon and you'll be hooked forever. You'll want to catch up with all the other books. It's a can't miss read.
5つ星のうち 5.0 Still funny, even after 14 books 2010/3/22
投稿者 Eric DiPier - (Amazon.com)
As someone else mentioned, it's kind of amazing that Jim Toomey can still come up with ideas for a fish cartoon after 14 books' worth of comic strips. You would think he'd have run out of jokes by now. This book is classic Sherman, probably not the best in the series but hilarious nonetheless and a must for any fan of the series.
