Swine Not?: A Novel Pig Tale

Swine Not?: A Novel Pig Tale is by Jimmy Buffett. A charming tale of a set of divorced parents, their twin children, twin pigs, a cat, a flock of pigeons, and an evil chef. Ellie is a Southern chef who gets a job at a 4-Star restaurant/hotel in New York City. She moves into a rooftop apartment with her twins, Barley and Maple, a cat and a pet pig named Rumpy. The hotel does not allow exotic poets, so the family has to hide Rumpy's presence. Not Buffett's best writing, but a cute children's tale.

Ratings: 6th grade - 6 out of 10.
