Beverly Metzger-Kleinman managed to get an advance copy of Jimmy Buffett’s upcoming book titled “Swine Not?” and she put together a short review.
Great Summer Reader for the entire family … Parrotheads lets push this to # 1
Swine Not? is a suprising good read … While it is not “Where is Joe Merchant”, or “A Salty Piece of Land”, more often it reminds the reader of “Tales from Margaritaville”. It is definitely worth the read. Something the adult ParrotHeads can read (and enjoy) and share with their young Parrotkeets.
Early on Jimmy did a book with Savannah. This begs the suggestion that not only is this a good story but something that Delaney and Cameron (being teenagers) can understand, appreciate, and enjoy.
When the family uproots themselves and moves to New York so Mom Ellie can take a job at a prestige Manhattan Hotel (the perfect place for her Volcano Cakes lava to flow), so Barley can play on the youth team for the Red Bulls (her favorite team), and Maple (the other twin) can be near and study her favorite clothing designer Karen Wu. This leaves Rumpy, (the pig) who was the goal tending champion in their old home town of Vertigo Tennessee hiding in the closet because the wicked Monsieur Boucher (Ellie’s Boss) got the hotel to outlaw to exotic pets in the hotel. So the story begins …
No this tale does not end on a ship sailing majestically into the sunset but with this tale Mr. Buffett proves he really did study journalism and deserved his degree.
A delightful summer read for the entire family.
