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.

    " Well - we've finished the Herdman books. Hugh enjoyed this one so much it made me change my original rating. Some books just have to be read as or with a kid. :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ethan Haler | 12/28/2013

    " I think the best halloween ever was good but didn't really grab my attention. i love the mischeif the herdmans do during this book. I loved the other book, the best chirstmas ever, that was exciting! I recommand the chirstmas one than the halloween. But still read both of them. Both books by Barbara Robinson. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Casey | 12/19/2013

    " This book was almost ok. I guess I didn't realize the main character was a girl until I was about 2/3 of the way done with the book. I will pass this book on and not make a big deal if my kids don't want to read this. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sean | 12/18/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Virginia | 11/18/2013

    " Oh, how I love the Herdmans! It was so fun to revisit these characters. I didn't think it quite stood up with The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, but it was still such a cute story. I liked it even more when my daughter stole it so she could read it, too! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 11/17/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meg | 3/27/2011

    " I chose this book as a "read-aloud" in my classroom in October. It was a difficult book to read aloud since there were a lot of flashbacks - the kids got a little lost a few times so I actually did not finish the entire book with them before Halloween hit. Maybe next year... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rina | 1/25/2011

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christina | 10/17/2010

    " Two stars seems so harsh for a children's book that wasn't objectionable in any way. But, you know, two stars means "it was ok," and that's what it was . . . just ok. "

    " This book isn't nearly as good as the Best Christmas Pageant ever but I liked it simply because it was about the characters I loved from that book. I read this aloud to my kids and my 7 & 9 year olds enjoyed it. "
