Synopsis

A Pirate's Night Before Christmas by Philip Yates

This is a humorous, colourful and thoroughly piratical version of the Clement C. Moore classic. Young mateys will love the rollicking rhymes and sprightly, fun-filled pictures. It is suitable for children aged 3 to 5 years old. 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 turn this Christmas perennial into a jubilant celebration!
