A Pirate's Night Before Christmas--by Philip Yates


Got a young pirate lover on board this Christmas? A Pirate’s Night Before Christmas is the perfect book for you and your little swashbuckling adventurer this year. Being bad is a pirate’s way of life, so it isn’t Santa that visits them on Christmas Eve. Instead it is a real tough character named Sir Peggedy. Complete with a peg leg and a sleigh pulled by a team of creatively named giant seahorses, Sir Peggedy knows how to bring Christmas cheer to all aboard the pirate ship, Black Sark. Colorfully detailed pictures of many rosy-cheeked pirates make this book as fun to look at as it is to read aloud. A glossary of pirate terms at the back of the book will have kids practicing their pirate lingo long after the story is over. AARGH!
