OVERVIEW
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 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 and Sebastià Serra create a delightful world all their own.

Now in a deluxe paperback with flaps!

Back for their second holiday high-seas adventure . . .  the Black Sark buccaneers plan twelve days of Yuletide surprises for their cabin boy.
