When Alexander wakes up with gum in his hair, he thinks that maybe it's going to be a bad day. When he trips on the skateboard by his bed and drops his sweater in the sink, he knows it's going to be even worse than he thought. His brothers find fabulous prizes in their cereal boxes; he finds cereal. His best friends get fancy desserts in their lunch boxes; Mom forgets dessert. From being scrunched in the car on the way to school all the way to lima beans for supper and kissing on TV (yuck!), the day just keeps getting worse. It's enough to make him want to move to Australia. A popular and prolific author of children's books, Judith Viorst writes so that kids can recognize themselves in her stories. Johnny Heller's sympathetic narration lets the child in everybody identify with Alexander's predicament and his temptation to go somewhere far away.

    " This is a great, imaginative book that explains to children that bad days really do happen to everyone, even in Australia! I loved the creative spin Viorst used when creating this fun story. I believe that Alexander is definitely a character that is relevant to every single student, since we're all bound to have one of those days. However, at the end of this book, the child's day might not seem too bad to them. This would be a great book to incorporate predications, cause & effect and you could even have your children switch-up the ending. Lots of great ides, with this entertaining book. "

    " Such a fun book! If you read it out loud it's even better! Poor Alex! It's such an adorable read and he's so cute having his fit!! Another Classic! "
