A Pirate’s Twelve Days of Christmas

A Pirate's Twelve Days of Christmas

If you are looking for a fun book to give the kids this Christmas, then I can thoroughly recommend A Pirate’s Twelve Days of Christmas.  The story is based on the famous rhyme of ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas but with a pirate themed twist.

The Cabin Boy is left on board the pirate ship Sark, whilst the rest of the crew go off in search of shipwrecked treasure.  Whilst they are away, all sorts of amazing gifts arrive onboard the ship for the Cabin Boy.

Sebastià Serra provides colourful illustrations for this lovely picture book which really add to the tale.  From Swinging Monkeys to Chests of Gold and Mermaids Singing, A Pirate’s Twelve Days of Christmas will have you wanting to sing your way through the story.

But who has been sending all these presents? The ship is certainly looking a little cramped by the time the other pirates return.

Priced at £5.99 any pirate loving book-worm is going to enjoy this book and we will certainly be reading it a lot!  I’ve included my Amazon Affiliate link for your convenience.

  1. My favourite rockstar (not really been obsessed with him for over 20 years lol – my friends would definitely disagree)? Erm, not sure that’ll happen, but an Ipad would be lovely. 🙂 😀

  2. I’d like an advent calendar that brought me different help every day, for twelve days. I’d have a cleaner one day, professional present wrapper the next, ironing service the day after . . .

  3. Perhaps something each day leading about to a big pamper night…..a candle, pyjamas, chocolate, bubble bath, takeaway voucher, etc.

  4. To be honest I’d love a King size bed, mine is getting rather small now my little toddler has decided he’s going to join mummy and daddy in the middle of every night 😉

I'd love to hear from you and try to reply to all comments
