Product Description

Meet the Herdmans: six scraggly, unchurched "welfare kids," who lie, steal, and smoke cigars (even the girls!). When these terrors of the town show up at Sunday school and muscle their way into the annual Christmas pageant, chaos---and hilarity---ensue! When Jesus said, "Let the little children come," he didn't mean the Herdmans---did he? 81 pages, softcover from HarperCollins.

Publisher's Description

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.

    This is an absolute favorite of mine. I directed a children's Christmas program using this story one year, and it was a big hit. Everyone loved it, and the children had a wonderful time preparing and presenting it. So glad to give this book to my granddaughter.

    Be forewarned all ye faint of heart -- the Herdmans are coming!

    This is one of the best Christmas books we have on our shelf. It garners a five-star rating with our family and we simply cannot recommend it highly enough!

    It is refreshing to find a modern story which represents the true meaning of God's Greatest Gift and exactly why He bestowed it upon us. His Gift of Love was not presented that first Christmas only to the rich, or the pure of heart, or those with proper manners and clean fingernails! Jesus, the Hope of mankind was given to us ALL! And the unabashed authenticity and eager receptiveness -- albeit at times frightening for the poor shepherds and baby angels (!!) -- with which the Herdmans receive, question and illustrate the Christmas story is uplifting. This book will make you laugh out loud. It will make you cry. It will make you think about your own worldview and motives. And then, it will make you laugh again.

    The Best Christmas Pageant Ever is a quick and easy read, appropriate for adults and children alike. While its true this is a short story, all of the characters are fully developed and genuinely likeable. Our entire family, including our preschoolers, has thoroughly enjoyed the humor, wry writing style and poignancy of the storyline held within these pages, as well as come away from each year's reading with newfound precious nuggets of Truth. Additionally, the simple black and white illustrations of the 1972 printing are quirky and lend a certain necessary "wild" element to the perception of the Herdmans; I wholeheartedly suggest that it is worth the time and effort to track down a copy of the 1972 edition.

    If you collect and enjoy Christmas books, then The Best Christmas Pageant Ever deserves a spot on your bookshelf. Read it together with your children every year and be blessed!
