On this ship of mischievous brigands, who have visions of treasure chests, not sugarplums, dancing in their heads, you wouldn't expect a visit from nice 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. Philip Yates' rollicking rhymes and Sebastia Serra's sprightly, fun-filled pictures turn this Christmas perennial into a jubilant celebration!
