The Worst Kids in the World

The Worst Kids in the World
Barbara Robinson

They were just so all-round awful you could hardly believe they were real:
Ralph, Imogene, Leroy, Claude, Ollie, and Gladys- six skinny, stringy-haired kids all alike except from being different sizes and having different black-and-blue places where they had clonked each other.
The Herdman kids are the worst kids in the world. Lying, stealing, smoking, and swearing are only some of the awful things that the Herdmans do.
So it’s incredibly surprising when the ‘terrors of the town’ take over the annual Christmas play, which results in the worst, or is it the best, Christmas pageant ever.
For ages eight to thirteen.
If you enjoy this humorous story, you may also enjoy the sequel-
‘The Best School Year Ever.’

Hey! I'll have to try out that book! I've read The Best Christmas Pagent Ever and The Best School Year Ever, but not that one! Cool!

Hey Jordan - I know this is completely off subject, but I was wondering about a friend of yours (I think I got to her blog from yours???)
Esther - she went to Uganda. Anyway, I was wondering where she is now and how I can get in contact with her. I went to Uganda a long, long time ago and have recently read through a lot of letters and stuff that I wrote whole I was there - I'm not sure, but I think there may be a book lurking in me. Anyway, I guess I wanted to write to Esther and get some of her thoughts. Can you help me? When are Mum and Dad back? And when are you guys moving again? Love to all, Helen.
