The Herdmans plus Halloween have always spelled disaster. Every year, these six kids -- the worst in the history of Woodrow Wilson School and possibly even the world -- wreak havoc on the whole town. They steal candy, spray-paint kids, and take anything that's not nailed down.
Now the mayor has had it. He's decided to cancel Halloween. There won't be any Herdmans to contend with this year, but there won't be any candy, either. And what's Halloween without candy? And without trick-or-treating? The Herdmans manage to turn the worst Halloween ever into the best Halloween ever in this uproarious sequel to The Best Christmas Pageant Ever.

This very funny audiobook about a potentially disastrous Halloween celebration proves that good reading is all. Yes, lots of different voices and accents are good, but, as the inimitable stage actress Elaine Stritch demonstrates, pacing, clarity, and an understanding of the material matter most. Stritch, who has narrated all of Barbara Robinson's clever books about the world from a kid's point of view, sounds like the professional she is. She doesn't bother with different voices, but we always know who is speaking. She reads with enthusiasm and enunciation, humor and precision. She likes this book a lot, and so do we.
