"The Herdmans are the most famous kids at Woodrow Wilson School. In fact, they are the most famous kids in the whole town -- and they are the worst kids in the history of the world. They are dirty, rotten, lazy, and ornery. They tell lies and smoke cigars and set fire to things. They stay away from school whenever they want to and won't learn anything when they are there.
Every September the students and teachers gear up for another year of dealing with the Herdmans. But no matter what precautions are taken, these modern-day outlaws still manage to cause hilarious mayhem year round. Their wild behavior always leads to disaster for someone, but how all continually escape blame. Could there something about this horrible clan state?
Barbara Robinson first introduced the unforgettable Herdmans in The Best Christmas Pageant Ever. Fans if this perennial favorite will not be disappointed by its equally hilarious, brilliant sequel.

Actress Elaine Stritch lends her dry voice to this recording of the long-awaited sequel to THE BEST CHRISTMAS PAGEANT EVER. Sixth-grader Beth has the ill fortune to draw Imogene Herdman's name in a year-long "Compliments for Classmates" project, and she must contend with the antics of the rest of the infamous Herdmans as well. Although clearly not a child's voice, Stritch's raspy, sardonic tone suits the story well, giving the sense of a wry, old teacher recounting an exaggerated tale of her own school days. Listeners will enjoy hearing the continuing misadventures of the Herdmans so pluckily recounted. R.Q.D. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
