Shermanâ€”who never allows thinking to interfere with life's simple pleasures, especially eatingâ€”is joined by Fillmore, his trusty turtle sidekick; Megan, his significant shark other; Hawthorne, the irascible hermit crab; and a host of other Neptunian neighbors occupying the lagoon of an imaginary South Pacific island called Kapupu.
In Sherman's Lagoon: Ate That, What's Next?, this cast of coral reef critters never fails to amuse. Consider Sherman opening a wrapped holiday gift box only to find a putrid dead fishâ€”and loving it! Or the day he and Fillmore contemplate plunging to the deepest depths of the ocean, in order to recover Fillmore's fumbled Ninja Turtle Decoder Ring. The fun and laughs never end!
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.”
