Are there any bullies in your school? If so, they won't hold a candle to the Herdmans. "They were the worst kids in the history of the world. They lied and stole and smoked cigars." When the Herdmans decide to act in the church play, Christmas takes on a whole new meaning.

“I spend most of my non- writing time in the pursuit of misplaced homework, missing socks, borrowed sweat pants, car keys, scotch tape, light bulbs, and, all too often, somebody’s contact lens. . .
. . .My kids would say that
all this is unimportant- that
the really important thing
about me is that I bake
terrific chocolate chip cookies.”
