Captain Bling's Christmas Plunder by Rebecca Colby

Captain Bling's Christmas Plunder by Rebecca Colby

'Twas the night before Christmas and all through the ship, the pirates were planning a plundering trip.

Captain Bling and his ragtag crew are planning a plunder! They are plotting to steal festive Christmas treasure. But, the ship gets caught in a gale, and Captain Bling is forced to run the ship ashore . . . landing right outside Santa's front door.

The pirates have found the perfect booty: Christmas gifts! Before Santa could say, "Ho-ho-ho, what's that noise?" the pirates run off with his bundle of toys! Santa tries to attack with his sack, but it's to no avail—sack vs. sword is a surefire disaster.

Before Santa can say, "Ho-ho-ho, stop this prank!" Captain Bling forces Santa to walk the gangplank! Suddenly, Santa thinks of a plan . . . what could it be? 

In Captain Bling's Christmas Plunder, two unlikely sources are fused together: pirates and Santa Claus. With hilarious rhyme and fun illustrations, Captain Bling and his crew will be added to your list of favorite holiday picture books. Make sure you listen on Christmas Eve for the festive call, "Ahoy! Ho-ho-ho! And to all a good night!"
