The Best Christmas Pageant Ever

Full Product Description

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever by Barbara Robinson.

Called one of America's favourite Christmas stories, and now a classic television movie, "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever" has been a favorite of young readers the world over since 1972.

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.

Funny, memorable, and outrageous, it is the story of a family of incorrigible children who discover the Christmas story for the first time and help everyoone else rediscover its true meaning.

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever by Barbara Robinson was published by HarperCollins in September 1998 and is our 20880th best seller. The ISBN for The Best Christmas Pageant Ever is 9780064402750.

There are several versions of this book online. Is this a picture book and is it the full version or abridged? Is it suitable for tweens or only younger children?

A:Hi, J Clark. Thanks for your question about this edition of The Best Christmas Pageant Ever by Barbara Robinson. From the ISBN number, this is the 2005 reprint of the 1972 Christmas children's classic. It is unabridged from the original and includes the strong, characterful illustrations by Judith Gwyn Brown reminiscent of those by Thomas Henry in the 'Just William Books' (don't miss the angel with the star). Yours, Les.
