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!
