A Pirate's Twelve Days of Christmas
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.

A delightfully successful rendition of this holiday carol. From the lyrics to the illustrations to the rhymes, this worked. This would be great to sing with preschoolers. Can you spot the pirate on each page? Read full review

After the first reading of this with both of my kids, the 4-year-old wanted to reread it every night for the past 3 nights at bedtime. And by last night's rereading, he was singing it along with me...and giggling madly. BEST review my son can give. Read full review
