In this hilarious Christmas tale, a couple struggling to put on a church Christmas pageant is faced with casting the Herdman kids-- probably the most inventively awful kids in history. You won't believe the mayhem-- and the fun-- when the Herdmans collide with the Christmas story head on!
"An American classic."-- McCall's Magazine
"One of the best Christmas stories ever-- and certainly one of the funniest."-- The Seattle Times
This delightful comedy is adapted from the best selling book and the only story ever to run twice in McCall's Magazine.
