A boy named Barley is nine years old when he is uprooted from his Tennessee home and moves--together with his mom, his two sisters, and their pet pig Rumpy, to New York City. There they take up residence on the top floor of one of New York's finest hotels, where his mom works as a pastry chef.

But "No Pets Allowed" is one of the hotel's strictest rules, and as Barley and Rumpy learn about life in the city, they also live in fear of Rumpy being discovered--and the hotel's evil head chef is on their trail.

Jimmy Buffett brings his trademark playfulness, simplicity, and originality to this tale, which is based on true events in the life of the book's illustrator, Helen Bransford. It is a classic story that will appeal to his fans and their children alike and make an irresistible holiday gift.
