Kristin Kladstrup’s bio

The Gingerbread Pirates Gift Edition

author: Kristin Kladstrup

Itís Christmas Eve, and Jim and his mother have left pirate gingerbread men for Santa. Jimís favorite is Captain Cookie, who carries a gingerbread cutlass and has a toothpick peg leg. Jim keeps him close by his bed. But late that night, when Jim is fast asleep, Captain Cookie step-taps away on a daring adventure to find his pirate crew and rescue them from that mysterious character heís heard about: a cannibal named Santa Claus. This masterfully illustrated tale, sparkling with all the excitement of a pirate adventure, is a new holiday classic.

"Swashbuckling gusto and a poignant finish should make this a new favorite." ó Publishers Weekly (starred review)
