Best-selling writer Jimmy Buffett weaves an irresistible new tale - filled with colorful characters, wry humor, and the pursuit of a very clever pig.

When Southern belle Ellie McBride moves her twins from Vertigo, Tennessee, to New York City, they wouldn't dream of leaving behind the family pig, Rumpy. But the posh hotel where Ellie has found work (and living space) has No Pets writ large on its portal. So hiding Rumpy from the hotel staff - especially the ultra-carnivorous hotel chef, who would like nothing better than to transform their pet into pork roast - becomes imperative.

    " I almost didn't finish this. Definitely different "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Nancy | 1/26/2014

    " Don't care how much I love Jimmy Buffett, I just cannot get into this book. I've tried several times and even borrowed the audio version from the library to see if I could just let it be read to me. Nope! I am curious to know if anyone has enjoyed it. Hmmmm??? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 1/25/2014

    " Cute. Not the world's best kid's book, but it was entertaining! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melanie | 1/25/2014

    " Bubba, I'm a big fan, but this book was pretty stupid. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 1/23/2014

    " a nice fast easy fun read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jason | 1/20/2014

    " Pretty disappointing as I was expecting much more from Buffett. I've really enjoyed the other two books of his that I've read, A Salty Piece of Land and Where is Joe Merchant. It was a quick read, which was what I was looking for, but just not as enjoyable as his other works. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa Kayden | 1/14/2014

    " This was a cute book, but more of a book for young adults. It was a super easy read, I think I read it in a day but I liked it. Would be a fun book for parents and kids to read aloud. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rod | 1/4/2014

    " This was alot better than I thought it would be. (Sorry Jimmy - but I've heard alot of your albums!) Its a great kids story about a pig who ends up living in a Manhattan 5 star hotel with his family. It has talking birds and monstrous bad guys. Lots of fun. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lindsey | 12/30/2013

    " I like pigs, Manhattan and Jimmy Buffett, but I just can't get through this book. I read 50 pages in about 10 minutes, and it's ridiculous. For example, the pig talks in first person. So, I won't be finishing this book. I just can't make myself do it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janet | 12/20/2013

    " Cute book written from the view point of the pig and his boy. Good book to read to children as a chapter book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joyce | 12/13/2013

    " How can you not enjoy the tale of a pet pig being hidden in the penthouse of a five-star Hotel in Manhattan? It was fun and enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alice Paterra | 12/7/2013

    " Fluffy and enjoyable. Love the pigeilantes "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Michelle | 12/4/2013

    " I'm not enjoying it like I thought I would. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 12/1/2013

    " A great little "fluff" book that I thoroughly enjoyed. I read Jimmy's other book: A Salty Piece of Land and enjoyed that too. Like his writing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Donna | 11/23/2013

    " It was cute, and probably written more as a children's tale, but it just didn't seem to be about anything. But it was a fun, easy read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristin | 9/28/2013

    " Although not your typical Jimmy Buffett story, definitely a fun tale that is based in reality. This book shows why he is one of the few authors to be ranked on both the NYT Fiction & Non-fiction best seller lists...sometimes with Buffett it's hard to tell! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Sue | 9/24/2013

    " Good children's book and a fun read for adults seeking a light read. Definitely not what I expected from Jimmy Buffet. Stretches credibility when describing the pig dressing herself in costumes. Pigs are smart but not that agile! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Deb | 8/13/2013

    " Not a bad book - got interesting towards the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa Roberts | 6/13/2013

    " Lovely feel good story - and good for a giggle! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ken | 5/18/2013

    " It was not as good as Salty Piece of Land. It felt more like a children's book than one of his novels. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kerri | 3/17/2013

    " Cute, easy read. Not complicated, but entertaining and a very quick read. A feel-good piece of fluff. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shirley | 3/10/2013

    " Just okay. Seemed more appropriate as a juvenile fiction, not adult. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carolyn | 2/4/2013

    " Jimmy Buffett is a good story-teller "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Karen | 12/4/2012

    " So, I love Jimmy Buffett... as a musician and entertainer... but this book was really bad. I picked it up in the airport on my way to Mexico and read the entire thing before we landed. It was really lame. Sorry Jimmy... just don't like you as an author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathleen | 5/13/2012

    " Another $1 book, it was fun and silly! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Doneen | 5/9/2012

    " I guess this might be a cute book for a pre-teen, but I was under the mistaken impression it was like his other books. Sort of sweet story for 10 year olds. Everybody's trying to write their own "Marley and Me," I guess. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jill Goldstein | 4/8/2012

    " I've read a number of Jimmy Buffet's books and they always made me laugh. Although this is a children's book, actually based on a true story, it just didn't hold my attention. If you want a great children't book by an "adult" author, read Hoot by Carl Hiaasen. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Patti | 11/12/2011

    " Okay, it's almost sacreligious not to LOVE something Jimmy Buffett does, but this book...I did not love. It would have been a cute children's story, but as a grown up novel, it fell short. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendy | 11/4/2011

    " Cute book, quick read and clever. You should never underestimate the power of a pig (and her family)! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda Phillips | 9/20/2011

    " Made me want to have a pet pig all over again! Plus I think I came out loving animals even more! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sara | 8/9/2011

    " I was disappointed in this book. I normally love Buffet but he missed the boat on this one -- maybe it should be in the juvenile section. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tara | 5/16/2011

    " This would be a cute children/family movie. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Michelle | 5/1/2011

    " I'm not enjoying it like I thought I would. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 4/29/2011

    " I can honestly say this is the best book about hiding a pig in an apartment on top of a New York that I have ever read. I have to admit that it is the only story like that to my knowledge. Buffett does a good job but it reads more like a Disney movie than a Jimmy Buffett story.

    "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Maureen | 3/27/2011

    " Too light for my taste. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steve | 3/6/2011

    " i thougt it was a rather intertaining novel... i only wish it would have takin me longer that a half a day to read it... but i have to much time on my hands anyway..lol....great book... i would recomend this to anyone who just likes sittin down and reading in the free time "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alicia | 2/18/2011

    " If I could give it 2.5 stars, I would. This wasn't as enjoyable as Mr. Buffett's others, but it was still amusing. Despite the fact that it is more or less a young adult book, I have problems with a plot hole and the Disney-villain-like characterization of the books antagonist. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 2/18/2011

    " This was a cute book, but more of a book for young adults. It was a super easy read, I think I read it in a day but I liked it. Would be a fun book for parents and kids to read aloud.

    "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Karen | 1/4/2011

    " So, I love Jimmy Buffett... as a musician and entertainer... but this book was really bad. I picked it up in the airport on my way to Mexico and read the entire thing before we landed. It was really lame. Sorry Jimmy... just don't like you as an author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maria | 1/1/2011

    " Family smuggles pet pig into their house on the roof of a 4 star hotel.

    Why I picked it up: My family recommended this book to me, and I knew that I should read it before I saw them again.

    Why I finished it: See above. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carly | 12/22/2010

    " This is about a family's adventures with Rumpy, their pet pig. They move to New York and have to hide him in their apartment, which is on the roof of a four star hotel. It's great because the story is told from Rumpy's point of view. It's a funny and entertaining quick read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Liz | 12/19/2010

    " Good for a quick read but not his best work. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie | 12/6/2010

    " Fabulously funny Thanksgiving Break read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Nancy | 12/5/2010

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Suzanne M | 11/15/2010

    " B.C. book....think Charlotte's Web in NYC, without the schmaltz. Probably more enjoyable if you have downed a couple of margaritas! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 11/13/2010

    " A great little "fluff" book that I thoroughly enjoyed. I read Jimmy's other book: A Salty Piece of Land and enjoyed that too. Like his writing. "

    " Fast enough and good enough to finish; not great "
