The Herdmans are the meanest kids in town and the biggest troublemakers around. From cussing at their teachers to setting things on fire, it seems like there's nothing the six siblings won't do…except maybe attend church. But that's exactly what the Herdman kids do one Sunday. And when they hear about the church's annual Christmas pageant, they decide to get involved—and take all the roles for themselves!

The Herdmans had never heard the Christmas story before, so they have their own unique interpretation of the tale. Like that Herod needs a good beating. And that Joseph should have burned down that inn. It's definitely the most unusual Christmas pageant anyone has ever seen…but it just might turn into the best one ever!

A beloved classic since its publication in 1972, this funny and memorable novel tells the story of the kids who unexpectedly help everyone else rediscover the true meaning of the Christmas story!
