    Shiver me timbers! A Pirates Night Before Christmas follows the traditional 'Twas the Night Before Christmas, but told from a pirates point of view from their ship. Beautiful illustrations. We especially enjoyed the pirate glossary at the end. Certainly a keeper for the Christmas collection!

    I read this whole thing to Emma in a REALLY GOOD/AUTHENTIC pirate accent. Can't wait to do it again when she's old enough to actually appreciate it....

    I read this to my family every year. It’s one of my favorites. So quirky and fun

    A Pirate's Night before Christmas, written by Philip Yates and illustrated by Sebastia Serra, is definitely a departure from the traditional 'Twas the Night Before Christmas tale. The rhymes are set up in a similar fashion, but imagine if you will a Christmas Eve aboard a pirate ship. The pirates are not nestled all snug in their beds, and they're not waiting on Santa Claus. No, they are doing pirate things-

    This book must be read in yer best pirate voice! It's a cute take on The Night Before Christmas, with the pirates sleepin', snorin' and dreamin' of treasure chests. They're waitin' for Sir Peggedy to come in his sled led by eight giant seahorses.

    The story is light and the illustrations are fun to look at. There's also a Pirate Glossary in the back where we learn that Bucko is what pirates call the

    I came across this at work (a thrift store) and just had to have it. I love pirates and I love Christmas, and this book combines them both! I like the backgrounds, though I'm not as sold on how the characters look. Then again, even if I don't like the style they're drawn in, the rougher looks fit pirates. What I really love about this book, however, are the changes made to the traditional poem. Most of the changes w

    A humorous version of Twas the Night Before Christmas. Pirates on a ship receive a visit from Sir Peg (Santa Claus) with his sleigh pulled by eight tiny seahorses named Salty, Scurvy, Sinbad, Mollie, Cutthroat, Cross-Eyes, Roger and Jolly. Hilarious! Sir Peg delivers pirate-appropriate gifts to each of the crew, including the young boy on board who gets the best present of all: a treasure map!
