Publisher's Description

“Hey! Unto you a child is born!”

Meet the Herdmans—they lie, cheat, and love to give clonks on the head. They are, without a doubt, the worst kids in the history of the world. 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. Joseph, Mary, the baby Jesus—it’s all news to them. So they’re convinced that the Wise Men should bring pizza and that the Angel of the Lord is straight out of a comic book. Everyone worries that this year’s pageant will be horrible (just like the Herdmans!), but they are sure to make it the most unusual anyone has seen and, just possibly, the best one ever.

Adapted from the beloved novel of the same name, this sparkling picture-book version is perfect for younger children. They will delight in the antics of the terrible Herdmans, who surprise everyone when they capture the true meaning of Christmas.

Author Bio

Barbara Robinson has written several popular books for children, including My Brother Louis Measures Worms, The Best School Year Ever, The Best Halloween Ever, and the enormously popular bestselling novel The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, first published in 1972, which was made into a classic TV movie and on which this book was based. The play The Best Christmas Pageant Ever is produced annually in theaters, schools, and churches all over the world. Ms. Robinson has two daughters and three grandchildren.

Laura Cornell lives in New York City with her daughter, Lily (first and only), but they spend much time in California, Laura's first state in her first home. She was asked to illustrate Jamie's first book, and that became ten. Lucky is the first word that comes to mind.

    I know that many of you of you would like to be Mary in our pageant, but of course we can only have one Mary. So Ill ask for volunteers, and then well decide together which girl should get the part. That was pretty safe to say, since the only person who ever raised her hand was Alice Wendleken. But Alice just sat there, chewing on a piece of her hair and looking down at the floor and the only person who raised her hand this time was Imogene Herdman. I want to be Mary. She looked back over her shoulder. And Ralph wants to be Joseph.

    The Herdmans are the worst kids in the world! And now they are taking over the annual Christmas pageant. The shepherds are afraid that the Angel of Lord will beat them up and Marys sure that the Wise Men are a bunch of dirty spies. Will the Christmas Pageant turn out OK?

    Genre: realistic. Issues dealt with: the meaning of Christmas.

    This book has an amazing insight on the meaning of Christmas and is on track spiritually. "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever" will entertain you and help you grow spiritually.

    "But the angel said to them, Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord." Luke 2:10-11 (NIV)

    I read this book when my children were in middle school, and it's been my favorite ever since. I just bought one for my grandson to read. His older sisters saw it and each commented on how much they had enjoyed reading it.
