Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What if a brave Captain Cookie stood up to Santa? A fresh, funny story that sparkles with all the excitement of a pirate adventure — and all the magic of Christmas morning.

Its Christmas Eve, and Jim and his mother are making pirate gingerbread men to leave for Santa. Jims favorite is Captain Cookie, who carries a gingerbread cutlass and has a toothpick peg leg. The captain is much too good to be eaten, so Jim keeps him close by his bed. But late that night, when Jim is fast asleep, Captain Cookie steptaps away on a daring adventure to find his pirate crew — and rescue them from that mysterious character hes heard about: a cannibal named Santa Claus. At once contemporary and timeless, suspenseful and joyous, this masterfully illustrated tale is destined to be a new holiday classic.

Review:

"A boy makes a gingerbread pirate crew on Christmas Eve; his mom leaves most of the pirates for Santa, but the boy takes the captain to his room. As the boy sleeps, the captain — sporting a ruffled shirt made of icing and a toothpick peg leg — makes his way downstairs ('Where's my crew? he wondered. And who's this Santa Claus who wants to eat them?'). Luckily, Santa ends up being a friend who gives the pirates a ship of their own. Swashbuckling gusto and a poignant finish should make this a new favorite. Ages 4 — 10. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
