The Best Halloween Ever (The Herdmans #3)
The Herdmans plus Halloween have always spelled disaster
Every Halloween, the six Herdman kids steal candy, spray-paint other kids, and take everything that isn't nailed down. And this year promises to be the same, until the Mayor decides to up and cancel Halloween. True, that means there'd be no Herdman trouble to contend with, but that also means no candy, no costumes, an...more
This sequel to "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever" is a bit of a one-joke story, spread out over the course of a hundred or so pages. The central conflict is the Herdman's have led the town to cancel Halloween, which makes all the k ...more

I had found this book a long time ago and tucked it away in our container of Halloween decorations with a few other Halloween-themed books. I figured that our girls would be old enough to want to read this someday.
This year, we pulled the book out and started reading it. I have to admit, though, that it just didn't seem to engage us. I kept falling asleep as I read ...more

The Best Halloween Ever is the story about a town that decides to cancel Halloween in hopes to not be terrorized once again by the dreaded Herdmans. Halloween instead will be an awful sanitized candy-free and safe celebration at the school, leaving all to wonder, will the Herdmans show up th ...more
It was a quick read but not a very fulling one. This was written 30 years after the original and it was unclear of what time period it was set. I'm assuming its the same "present day" setting because these children have very few similarities with kids of today.
It was very chaotic and I didn't understand the conclusion. I agree with other reviews sayi ...more
I found myself liking the book mainly because it was enjoyable to read. I do think this book could be used in the class room as a fun way to teach the children not to put permanent labels of people. The moral of this story is that th ...more
I never heard about the Herdmans before, I was working with a fifth grade teacher and the students did a peer book study on the Christmas book. We laughed so much along at the Herdmans, that I had to add them to my must read books.
Imagine everything that could possibly go wrong at a Halloween party taking place in a school......and triple it! The Herdmans have done it again - they, in trying to spoil Halloween, have saved it.
My mother, widowed when I was three years old, taught school for forty-nine years in that same small town, and her major (indeed, only) extravagance was books. I grew up with, and quickly adopted, the notion that reading was the only way to fill up every scrap of loose time you ...more
