'

Francisco is finally old enough to journey to the mango grove all by himself to gather the mangoes for a special dinner. But bees swarm the fruit, and Francisco has trouble picking them from the tree. He returns to his father several times, and each time his father shares a different proverb to inspire Francisco to continue trying. \"Querer es poder. Where there\'s a will, there\'s a way!\" Finally, Francisco is able to gather some mangoes, and on his way home he stops to visit his uncle, grandmother, and aunt. Francisco shares his mangoes with them, and by the time he gets home he no longer has any! \"Es mejor dar que recibir. Sometimes it\'s better to give than to receive.\" 

Luckily for Francisco, his generosity does not go unnoticed. \"Amor con amor se paga. Love is repaid with love.\"

Readers are sure to be charmed by this humorous story about problem solving and sharing. The book includes a glossary of Spanish words.'

Synopsis:

This creative retelling of Clement Moore's classic Christmas poem is presented from the point of view of a young boy on a pirate ship and details the arrival of Sir Peggedy aboard the "Black Shark." Full color.

Synopsis:

Come aboard, young mateys, for a piratical retelling of "The Night Before Christmas!" On a ship of mischievous brigands-who have visions of treasure, not sugarplums, dancing in their heads—you won't expect a visit from jolly St. Nick. But can tough buccaneers catch the holiday spirit, too? Philip Yates's rollicking rhymes and Sebastiá Serra's sprightly pictures turn Moore's Christmas perennial into a jubilant celebration.

Synopsis:

'Twas the night before Christmas aboard the Black Sark,

Not a creature was stirrin', not even a shark!

Come aboard, young mateys, for a humorous, colorful, and thoroughly piratical retelling of "The Night Before Christmas!" On a ship of mischievous brigands—who have visions of treasure chests, not sugar plums, dancing in their heads—you wouldn't expect a visit from jolly 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. But even buccaneers can catch the holiday spirit …

 
Philip Yates's rollicking rhymes and Sebastiá Serra's sprightly, fun-filled pictures turn Clement C. Moore's Christmas perennial into a jubilant celebration. 

Synopsis:

Young mateys will find plenty of holiday joy in this humorous, colorful, and thoroughly piratical version of the beloved Clement C. Moore classic. On this ship of mischievous brigands—who have visions of treasure chests, not sugarplums, dancing in their heads—you wouldnt 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 Sebastià Serras sprightly, fun-filled pictures—featuring whimsically multicolored seahorses, stockings hung on the ships bowsprit with tar, child-friendly pirates, and a complete treasure map—turn this Christmas perennial into a jubilant celebration!
