Synopsis

A Pirate's Night Before Christmas by Philip Yates

This is a humorous piratical version of the beloved classic by Clement C. Moore. Sir Peggedy, with his peg leg and hook arm, replaces St. Nick and Seahorses replace reindeer in this fun and colourful story. It is aimed at ages 3 to 6. Young mateys will find plenty of holiday joy in this humorous, colourful and thoroughly piratical version of the beloved Clement C. Moore classic. On this ship of mischievous brigands - who have visions of treasure chests, not sugarplums, dancing in their heads - you wouldn't expect a visit from nice St. Nick. Instead, here comes Sir Peggedy, with his peg leg and hook arm, cracking his whip and driving eight giant seahorses: Salty, Scurvy, Sinbad, Mollie, Cutthroat, Cross-Eyes, Roger and Jolly. Philip Yates' rollicking rhymes and Sebastia Serra's sprightly, fun-filled pictures - featuring whimsically multicoloured seahorses, stockings hung on the ship's bowsprit with tar, child-friendly pirates and a complete treasure map - turn this Christmas perennial into a jubilant celebration! This title also includes a glossary of pirate terms.
