A Pirates Night Before Christmas @SterlingBooks

I am not sure how or when Broxton got into enjoying Pirates, but he did ... and when he sees a pirate book, he loves to read them. So much that one day, Marc had to make a special trip... He had in his mind he wanted to buy Broxton a new pirate book, so they had to go to a book store and find the perfect one.  Now, Broxton has several pirate books and I am not ashamed to admit that when I read the books to him, I do notice I attempt (not very good) to sound like a pirate.

One Christmas we were sent a book to review called A Pirates Twelve Days of Christmas...    It was a cute book, so when I opened the mail and saw we had A Pirates Night Before Christmas from the same author, I knew we were going to be in for a treat!  
With Sea Horses (instead of Reindeer) we had names like "Jolly" and "Roger" even "Salty" and "Scurvy"  It has the "Twas the Night before Christmas " feel, but all the way Pirate sure to make any little sea lover delight in reading this book!  I love the story.  I love the illustrations!  I really hope they make a new book for next year!   

The website description: 
'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 SebastiĆ” Serra's sprightly, fun-filled pictures turn Clement C. Moore's Christmas perennial into a jubilant celebration.
