The Best Christmas Pageant Ever

The Herdmans are the worst kids in the history of the world. They lie, steal, smoke cigars, swear, and hit little kids. So no one is prepared when this outlaw family invades church one Sunday and decides to take over the annual Christmas pageant.

None of the Herdmans has ever heard the Christmas story before. Their interpretation of the tale -- the Wise Men are a bunch of dirty spies and Herod needs a good beating -- has a lot of people up in arms. But it will make this year's pageant the most unusual anyone has seen and, just possibly, the best one ever.

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 26, 2011 – The worst kids in the history of the world are laugh-out-loud outrageous in this rollicking picture-book adaptation of Robinson s 1972 novel. Cornell s (My Mommy Hung the Moon) humorous, energetic illustrations highlight the incorrigible Herdman siblings naughtiness, as they re pictured acting out well beyond the shenanigans chronicled in the punchy text. At Sunday school, they stole all the money out of the collection plate, and the fact that they don t know the Nativity story didn t stop them from picking out the best parts for themselves. As in the original version, they steal the show, providing a satisfying primer for kids not yet ready for Robinson s longer holiday treat. Ages 4 8.
