Praise for A Pirate's Night Before Christmas
"The crew from A Pirate's Night Before Christmas sails through another Christmas-tide romp . . . Serra's digitally colored pen-and-ink compositions are filled with swashbuckling action and create a rollicking holiday mood." --Publishers Weekly ". . . this pirate crew is having such a grand time you'll get into the swashbuckling spirit in no time. Back for their second holiday high-seas adventure . . . the Black Sark buccaneers plan twelve days of Yuletide surprises for their cabin boy.
