Yo ho ho and a bottle of eggnog! Cap’n McNasty’s come with his crew of scalawags to plunder Christmas presents from sleeping children. Their daring raid pays off in sweets and toys, much to the pirates’ delight. As they happily bounce on their hornswoggled pogo sticks and scarf down Christmas cookies, the pirates vow to steal gifts every year-but their plans are shaken up like a bowl full of jelly when Santa and his elves arrive! Holiday hijinks ensue as the pirates get their halls decked and plums sugared. The rapscallions are tied up in tinsel and seemingly foiled, but Cap’n McNasty won’t go down without a fight! He and St. Nick square off in a duel of hook versus candy cane that could determine the very future of Christmas.

This rollicking tale features hilarious illustrations and hidden surprises on every page. Wickedly witty rhymes will leave visions of ballistic fruitcakes dancing in readers’ heads. The young-and young at heart-will roar at this clever tale of merry mayhem year after year. Parents and children will never forget the most important lesson of all: if you’re a pirate, shiver your timbers and shut your doors, because Santa Claus is coming to town!

Battle for the Knotty List

by Michael G. Lewis

illustrated by Stan Jaskiel

Cap’n McNasty and his crew of roguish rapscallions are back and badder than ever! When the Cap’n kidnapped a little elf from Santa, he didn’t count on the elf inciting a mutiny and high-seas hijinks by telling tales of the wonders of the North Pole. Cast adrift and faced with stormy seas, ravenous sharks, and a striking lass who just might capture his black heart, Cap’n McNasty faces the voyage of his life. His double-dealing crew has ideas of their own and sets their sights from swabbing decks to decking halls—and changing the North Pole forever. From bow to stern, this impishly illustrated yarn of Jolly Rogers and a jolly old elf will give yer funnybone no quarter!

With stomachs a-grumblin’, McNasty has to come up with a plan to feed his hungry crew – or face a mutiny. What happens when these frolicking freeloaders smell that first luscious Thanksgiving feast while sailing off Plymouth Rock and decide to crash the party?
