“Merry Christmas!” called the mouse.

Christmas! What’s that? thought the captain.

Jim and his mother are making gingerbread men.  Not just any gingerbread men, gingerbread pirates!  On Christmas Eve, Captain Cookie must set off to rescue his crew from the “cannibal” Santa Claus.  But Captain Cookie and his crew are in for a Christmas surprise!

My brother and I loved reading this book; it was Christmassy, magical and “SWEET”.  The Gingerbread Pirates is a tasty treat for the holidays that any child from the ages 5-8 will enjoy, especially pirate-loving boys. It is a book that will certainly make you smile. With beautiful illustrations and a story full of Christmas spirit, The Gingerbread Pirates makes a great Christmas gift, and an awesome book to read on Christmas Eve. 

Kristine Kladstrup originally started writing this for her son to read on Christmas Eve, because he loves gingerbread and pirates.  She has written another book called the Book Of Story Beginnings.

I give The Gingerbread Pirates 4 tree-topping stars.
