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.

Get ready for a wonderful ride as master storyteller Jimmy Buffett takes readers on a brilliantly funny romp through<_st13a_city _w3a_st="on"><_st13a_place _w3a_st="on">Manhattanand beyond. From spoiled rock stars to highly caffeinated football coaches, Buffett's satirical view of American culture never ceases to bite and delight.
