The Herdman kids are a rough and tumble bunch who create mayhem wherever they go. Cast in the church's annual Christmas pageant, they bring their own unique interpretation to the familiar events. Remarkably, they help everyone rediscover its true meaning. The Seattle Times calls it "One of the best Christmas stories ever - and certainly one of the funniest." Adapted by Barbara Robinson fromher book of the same name, a favorite of young readers since 1972.
