Publisher's Description

The don't miss, laugh-out-loud Christmas favorite!

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.

As a reviewer commented: "In the end, this is not just a funny book, but a powerful story of redemption. Through most of the book, I can't stop laughing, but by the end I am always reading through tears, even after having read it eleven times." Anita Silvey, in her guidebook Children's Books and Their Creators, agreed: "The book is great fun and continues to be enjoyed by readers each holiday season."

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.

    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.
