A Pirate's Twelve Days of Christmas by Philip Yates

Into the Wild

Read A Pirate's Twelve Days of Christmas Online Free - On the first day of Christmas, a gift was sent to me: a parrot in a palm tree! Ahoy mateys--Christmas is coming and even pirates celebrate the holiday! This follow-up to the hugely popular A Pirate's Night Before Christmas offers a witty re-imagining of “The Twelve Days of Christmas”—with a sly buccaneer twist. A brave cabin boy receives marvelously mysterious gifts for each of the 12 days he is left alone to guard the pirate ship: 12 cannons blastin', 9 mermaids singin', 6 Jolly Rogers, and so on—but who are they from? With impeccable rhythm and a lively sense of fun, Philip Yates and Sebastià Serra create a delightful world all their own.

Beautiful colors & illustrations. This is a refreshing take on pirates. I feel like a lot of "pirate speak" type books are obnoxious & hard to read because of jumbling difficult words, but this book was pleasantly surprising in that the language flowed very easily in "pirate speak". Well...

A surprisingly not-quite-annoying version of the classic song - with pirates! Set within a cute frame story, and with a bonus glossary at the back to explain why some of these gifts are truly great. Also, I am endlessly amused by the hen in an eyepatch.

Argh! This is incredibly clever - I loved every page. If you have pirate lovers in your family, this will keep them seated and begging for a read through or two. Be sure when you're reading it you don't just look at the words - take the time to look at the illustrations too; there's some funny st...

It takes the song the Twelve Days of Christmas and turns it pirate style. Again, I love the beautiful and colorful illustrations. By the...

I bought this book this holiday season for my kids (girls ages 7,5 and 2). The illustrations are AMAZING and the story is really fun. There is a vocab guide in the back of the book that I would suggest reading to your kids first since the book uses many pirate phrases that are unique like cutlass...

My Kindergartners and/or 1st graders will love this story and it will make a fun read aloud. I appreciate the Pirate Glossary in the back of the book that will help students understand the jargon of the pirates. I can envision a lot of fun activities that can go along with this book and look forw...

After the first reading of this with both of my kids, the 4-year-old wanted to reread it every night for the past 3 nights at bedtime. And by last night's rereading, he was singing it along with me...and giggling madly. BEST review my son can give.
