Actress Elaine Stritch lends her dry voice to this recording of the long-awaited sequel to THE BEST CHRISTMAS PAGEANT EVER. Sixth-grader Beth has the ill fortune to draw Imogene Herdman's name in a year-long "Compliments for Classmates" project, and she must contend with the antics of the rest of the infamous Herdmans as well. Although clearly not a child's voice, Stritch's raspy, sardonic tone suits the story well, giving the sense of a wry, old teacher recounting an exaggerated tale of her own school days. Listeners will enjoy hearing the continuing misadventures of the Herdmans so pluckily recounted. R.Q.D. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
