A Pirate's Twelve Days of Christmas...Review & FLASH Give Away!
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 offers a witty re-imagining 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 blastin', 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 Sebastià Serra create a delightful world all their own.
This is NOT your average Christmas tale. It is a book mateys and hearties and even landlubbers are sure to love. The Twelve Days of Christmas is nothing new but the items on the list surely are! A parrot in a palm tree? Check! Pirates Snoring? Mermaids Dreaming? Check and Check! This book is just so much fun and is full of fun pirate vocabulary (there is even a pirate glossary included in the back!). The illustrations, done by Sebastia Serra are colorful and whimsical and the perfect accompaniment to this fun tale. Pick this up for your little pirates today in time for Christmas on Amazon.....
