'Twas the night before Christmas aboard the Black Sark,

Not a creature was stirrin', not even a shark!

Come aboard, young mateys, for a humorous, colorful, and thoroughly piratical retelling of "The Night Before Christmas!" On a ship of mischievous brigands—who have visions of treasure chests, not sugar plums, dancing in their heads—you wouldn't expect a visit from jolly 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. But even buccaneers can catch the holiday spirit … Philip Yates's rollicking rhymes and Sebastiá Serra's sprightly, fun-filled pictures turn Clement C. Moore's Christmas perennial into a jubilant celebration.
