Descended from Spanish pirates, the Pigaroons, like their pilfering ancestors before them, stole stuff. One night they steal a crystal-clear block of ice from their neighbors the River Patrollers, who had intended to carve it for entry in the annual ice festival sculpture contest. When the River Patrollers awake to discover the Pigaroons have taken their block of ice, they decide that enough is enough, and they set about devising a plan . . .
Arthur Geisert’s etchings will delight readers with their beautiful colors and intricate details in this celebration of another triumph for creative ingenuity.
