Overview

Hey Unto you a child is born

Meet the Herdmans they lie, cheat, and love to give clonks on the head. They are, without a doubt, the worst kids in the history of the world. 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. Joseph, Mary, the baby Jesus it s all news to them. So they re convinced that the Wise Men should bring pizza and that the Angel of the Lord is straight out of a comic book. Everyone worries that this year s pageant will be horrible (just like the Herdmans ), but they are sure to make it the most unusual anyone has seen and, just possibly, the best one ever.

Adapted from the beloved novel of the same name, this sparkling picture-book version is perfect for younger children. They will delight in the antics of the terrible Herdmans, who surprise everyone when they capture the true meaning of Christmas."

The “worst kids in the history of the world” are laugh-out-loud outrageous in this rollicking picture-book adaptation of Robinson’s 1972 novel. Cornell’s (My Mommy Hung the Moon) humorous, energetic illustrations highlight the incorrigible Herdman siblings’ naughtiness, as they’re pictured acting out well beyond the shenanigans chronicled in the punchy text. At Sunday school, they “stole all the money out of the collection plate,” and the fact that they don’t know the Nativity story “didn’t stop them from picking out the best parts for themselves.” As in the original version, they steal the show, providing a satisfying primer for kids not yet ready for Robinson’s longer holiday treat. Ages 4–8. (Sept.)
