Publisher's Summary

The Worst Kids in the History of the World! When anything goes wrong at Woodrow Wilson Elementary School, from the hexing of Bus Six to the mysterious disappearance of the kindergarten gerbil, it's sure to have a Herdman behind it. The Herdmans are more than famous, they're outlaws. They smoke cigars, lie, and set fire to things, and that's only when they bother to come to school! Then a school project forces the students to think of compliments for all their classmates, including the Herdmans. Is it possible that behind their outrageous pranks there may be something good about this crazy clan after all?

Awesome and fun listen!

What made the experience of listening to The Best School Year Ever the most enjoyable?

The Herdman's are back with this fun, hilarious classic about very spirited children coming to your school. It's like Amelia Bedelia for third and fourth graders. Their antics leave you laughing!

What about Elaine Stritch’s performance did you like?

Easy to listen too. Miss Stitch's voice is clear and full of merriment just like the Herdmans.

Any additional comments?

You must listen to at least one Herdman book before you die. Though written for third and fourth graders, add this to your bucket list!

A funny way to paint a silver lining

This was a fun book that taught you to see the good in people in the most unusual way. My girls have listened to this story several times and giggle all the way through.
