From the Back Cover
The Herdmans are the worst kids in the history of the world. They lie, steal, smoke cigars, swear, and hit little kids. So no one is prepared when this outlaw family invades church one Sunday and decides to take over the annual Christmas pageant.
None of the Herdmans has ever heard the Christmas story before. Their interpretation of the tale -- the Wise Men are a bunch of dirty spies and Herod needs a good beating -- has a lot of people up in arms. But it will make this year's pageant the most unusual anyone has seen and, just possibly, the best one ever.

It doesn't matter how the book ends...the basic premise is way off base. We all (children included) ended up despising the author, Barbara Robinson. Why should we look down on that family and judge them so much?
Maybe the worst thing we can say about this book was that is was simply unfunny (not even amusing) and a hate-filled bore of a story. There are so many other children's books similar to this book that are funny, have children that do some crazy or even mean things, don't make the reader so self-righteous and still show some level of compassion throughout. Ex: Junie B. Jones, Tales of a 4th Grade Nothing, etc.

Only once was someone too lazy to take on this short read, looked up the movie of it, was (of course) disappointed, and dismissed the whole thing. This is truly a book to delight all ages.
the book takes place at the herd mans house and the church. the book is about a Christmas pageant at the
church. Herd mans are very bad kids who smoked and said bad words. the only reason that the herd mans were even interested in church is because one of them herd that you get food there like chocolate cake but they do not get snacks at ccd the kid was just lying to sound cool to the herd mans witch did not work because the herd mans wanted to join the church so they did then they were in the Christmas pageant and the problem was that all the kids and adults thought that they were going to ruin the Christmas pageant. But in the end they did not ruin it and it turned out to be okay. overall I really liked the book and I would recommend it.
