12 Days: Day 7: The Gingerbread Pirates by Kladstrup & Tavares


My main post today is about scents. One of my favorite smells is Gingerbread, Hmmm, Gingerbread ! So I thought this review would match it quite well ;)
It's Christmas Eve and Jim, and his Mother have made a Pirate Crew out of Gingerbread. Jim immediately becomes attached to Captain Cookie and keeps him by his bedside. Captain Cookie however is disturbed.

He has heard that someone called Santa Claus is on his way and his pirate crew is in danger of being eaten! So Captain Cookie is on a mission to rescue his crew from the hungry Claus! Captain faces dangerous stairs, hungry rats and the dreaded Claus himself.
This was such a cute read. I really loved Tavares art, the Gingerbread cookies are so cuteand I loved the storyline. A wonderful book to read to kids . :)

I can appreciate this story because on the rare times I do bake I like bringing gingerbread cookies to life. It's fun playing with the icing, and they do smell pretty tasty.

I love me some Gingerbread.... Made a house, sleigh and deer this year and have casualties already... lol... Already ate the sleigh and deer. At least the house still stands. For now.

I love this story so much. I am definitely going to look into getting this for the grandkids. Especially the grandsons.
