Horn Book Review

(Primary) On Christmas Eve, a pirate captain gingerbread man (with a toothpick for a peg leg) refuses to accept his crew's fate on the plate of the season's most notorious cookie eater, Santa. Captain Cookie's quest to rescue his crew from their cookie-jar imprisonment is not without peril, and humorous obstacles abound, including an encounter with a mouse that leaves him weaponless (his gingerbread cutlass is devoured before his eyes) and a pervasive confusion as to what Christmas is all about. In the end, Santa steps in to teach the pirates about the true nature of Christmas, graciously forgoing his snack in their favor and granting Captain Cookie his wish -- to become the captain of a toy pirate ship. Tavares's vivid watercolor and gouache paintings dramatize Kladstrup's lively text with vigor in this imaginative adventure story. From HORN BOOK, (c) Copyright 2010.
