Alexander's two brothers have money in their pockets. All he has are bus tokens. It isn't fair. He had money last Sunday when his grandparents gave them each a dollar. Now it's all gone. At first he was saving the money for a walkie-talkie. But saving money is hard. He bought gum with some of the money, and when it stopped tasting good, he had to buy more. Good-bye 15 cents. Then Eddie offered to rent him his snake for an hour, and he couldn't pass up a chance like that. Betting his brother that he could hold his breath while he counted to 300 wasn't a good idea, either. He'll never own that walkie-talkie!

Judith Viorst has a gift for getting inside a little boy's head and making sense of what goes on there. Paired with Johnny Heller's acting talent, the result is a good chuckle, laced with real compassion, for the child in everyone.

    " This book teaches students about the value of a dollar. It is an excellent book to use with coin manipulatives when teaching students about exchange and the value of a coin. Allow students to follow along with the story while working with money. "

    " Let it be known that Alexander is the best easy picture book character out there today. I adore the illustrations, the expressions on the characters faces and the dialect. A great story time/school group read, you can really go to town on voices and flailing limbs :) "
