Publisher's Description

Laughs abound in this bestselling Christmas classic by Barbara Robinson! The Best Christmas Pageant Ever follows the outrageous shenanigans of the Herdman siblings, or “the worst kids in the history of the world.” The siblings take over the annual Christmas pageant in a hilarious yet heartwarming tale involving the Three Wise Men, a ham, scared shepherds, and six rowdy kids.

Ralph, Imogene, Leroy, Claude, Ollie, and Gladys Herdman are an awful bunch. They set fire to Fred Shoemaker’s toolshed, blackmailed Wanda Pierce to get her charm bracelet, and smacked Alice Wendelken across the head. And that’s just the start! When the Herdmans show up at church for the free snacks and suddenly take over the Christmas pageant, the other kids are shocked. It’s obvious that they’re up to no good. But Christmas magic is all around and the Herdmans, who have never heard the Christmas story before, start to reimagine it in their own way.

This year’s pageant is definitely like no other, but maybe that’s exactly what makes it so special.

    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.
