This book is about those crazy Herdmans. They did a lot of crazy things like got a kid to crack walnuts on his head .They got to skip school whenever they wanted. I liked when they put cigars in Smokey's the Bear's mouth. Imogene gives her baby blanket to Howard.

I think that this was a good book. There were so many funny parts in it. My favorite part is when they get a first grade kid named Eugene to crack walnuts on his head for a talent show. When I read this part, I laughed out loud. I think the best character was Alice Wendlekin because she was always acting so prissy, she made me laugh.

I recommend this book to smarter kids because there are a lot of difficult words in it.
