Print
Young mateys will find plenty of holiday joy in this humorous, colorful, and thoroughly piratical version of the beloved Clement C. Moore classic. On this ship of mischievous brigands--who have visions of treasure chests, not sugarplums, dancing in their heads--you wouldn't expect a visit from nice St. Nick. Instead, here comes Sir Peggedy, with his peg leg and hook arm, cracking his whip and driving eight giant seahorses: Salty, Scurvy, Sinbad, Mollie, Cutthroat, Cross-Eyes, Roger, and Jolly. Philip Yates' rollicking rhymes and Sebastià Serra's sprightly, fun-filled pictures--featuring whimsically multicolored seahorses, stockings hung on the ship's bowsprit with tar, child-friendly pirates, and a complete treasure map--turn this Christmas perennial into a jubilant celebration!

I started to read this book and was enjoying it so much I had to stop and start over by reading it out loud to my two teenage sons. We enjoyed it very much! There is a lot of "pirate" language throughout, but the author includes a glossary in the back to help young readers. This is a wonderful opportunity to teach about the parts of a ship and pirate life. I enjoyed how everything was kept clean and non-violent since Pirates can tend to go the other way. This book made pirates into a cheerful bunch. One pirate even sleeps with a teddy bear. The illustrations are very colorful and busy. Which means the book can be looked at over and over and new things will be seen each time.
Would I recommend this book? YES! I think all ages could enjoy this book.
