Publisher Comments:

Hey! Unto you a child is born!

The Herdmans are absolutely the worst kids in the history of the world. They lie and steal and smoke cigars (even the girls). They talk dirty, hit little kids, cuss their teachers, set fire to Fred Shoemaker's old broken-down toolhouse, and take the name of the Lord in vain. So no one is prepared when the Herdmans invade church one Sunday-and decide to take over the annual Christmas pageant.

None of them has ever heard the Christmas story before. Their interpretation — the Wise Men are a bunch of dirty spies and Herod needs a good beating-- has a lot of people up in arms. But the actual pageant is full of surprises for everyone, starting with the Herdmans themselves.

About the Author

Barbara Robinson has written many popular books for children, including The Best Halloween Ever, The Best School Year Ever, and My Brother Louis Measures Worms and Other Louis Stories. The Best Christmas Pageant Ever is an ALA Notable Children's Book and was filmed as a television movie.

Kim G., December 9, 2007 (view all comments by Kim G.)
Every Christmas our Mom would read this delightful story to my sister and me. We never tired of hearing it year after year. When we were old enough to read ourselves, she had to buy us two copies as we didn’t want to share. I love sharing this story with my nephews now. It wouldn’t be Christmas without reading this book.
