This is the third book about the very ugly dog Samson and the smart but ever so hungry cat Roberto. Together they run the Fjord view hotel. This time they have both an enemy to fight and a mystery to solve.
When the very big, and to the core bad, dog Sheriff appears, arresting the mole-poet Gregor for illegal immigration and closing down the local newspaper Fjord Times, they really get their hands full. Mr-fixit-Otter Olli promptly constructs a secret print shop in the basement under the von Ostrich convenience store, where the journalist-rat Benny starts a underground newspaper. At the same time a new guest arrives; Mario Gastromati. Italian beaver, hairdresser and restaurant owner. He is looking for the secret recipe of Padre Pietros elderberry lemonade, and he has reasons to think that the recipe is hidden somewhere in the area. The lemonade is said to have the most astounding effect on those who drink it. Astoundingly enough, Sheriff is overly friendly to Mario. What is he planning? And are the two of them in business together?
