The Best Christmas Pageant Ever illustration will appear here.

The Herdmans are the worst kids ever born. They smoke, drink beer, lie and steal. They hit little kids and talk dirty. Most people think that the Herdmans have rabies because they are so crazy and mean. They even joined the Christmas pageant for junk food. When they become part of the Christmas pageant, they learn about Jesus. They also learn that pageant stars arenít for hitting. They also participated in church.

I like this book because it is funny and weird. This book is funny because a boy read "Christmas pageant" and he thought "pageant" was "pregnant". This book is also weird because the Herdmans smoke and drink and do other crazy things.

I would recommend this book to children who like to laugh at crazy children doing funny and weird things.
