Synopsis

A Pirate's Twelve Days of Christmas by Philip Yates

On the first day of Christmas, a gift was sent to me: a parrot in a palm tree! Ahoy mateys - Christmas is coming, and even pirates celebrate the holiday! This follow-up to the hugely popular A Pirate's Night Before Christmas (9781402790010) offers a witty reimagining of The Twelve Days of Christmas - with a sly buccaneer twist. A brave cabin boy receives marvelously mysterious gifts for each of the 12 days he is left alone to guard the pirate ship: 12 cannons biastin', 9 mermaids singin', 6 Jolly Rogers, and so on - but who are they from? With impeccable rhythm and a lively sense of fun, Philip Yates and Sebastia Serra create a delightful world all their own.
