But it will make this year's pageant the most unusual anyone has seen and, just possibly, the best one ever.

Read the book and did the play when I was in 4th grade I think. You somehow find yourself some sort of relation to a member of the Herdman family, they are all so outrageous but you find yourself wanting to be in their family. I think this would be a super fun reader's theater.
