Ahoy mateys! Christmas is coming, and even pirates celebrate the holiday! This follow-up to A Pirate's Night Before Christmas 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 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's tale for readers 4 to 8 features SebastiÓ Serra's giddy pencil and ink illustrations, and the book includes a glossary of pirate jargon.
