Twas the night before Christmas aboard the Black Sark…” These pirates aren’t waiting for Santa Claus – instead they are hoping for a visit from Sir Peg. Riding a sleigh pulled by eight giant sea horses, and sporting an eye patch, peg leg, and hook, Sir Peg is a sight to see. But he comes bringing joyous gifts to all the crew.

With the same rhyming cadence as the original, A Pirate’s Night Before Christmas is an alternative and fun Christmas Eve read. Kids of all ages will enjoy it.
