Best Christmas

By Barbara Robinson
December 2008 

Synopsis:  The Herdmans are the worst kids in the whole history of the world; they lie, steal and cheat.  Now they have bullied their way into the annual Christmas pageant!  Slated to be the “worst pageant ever”, the whole town has gathered in anticipation, waiting to see the Herdmans ruin Christmas.  Will the pageant be a disaster as everyone is expecting, or will the spirit of the season change the hearts and minds of the Herdman family?
