Alexander at his worst best - well beloved by preschoolers through 2nd grade (and beyond if they'd just admit it).

Alexander is having a bad day, and comically wants to move to Australia. One of my favorites when I was a kid, my kids don't enjoy it like I did.

Alexander knew it was going to be a terrible day when he woke up with
gum in his hair. And it got worse...
His best friend deserted him. There was no dessert in his lunch bag. And, on top of all that, there were lima beans for dinner and kissing on TV.

An excellent book for those days when just nothing seems to go right. We read this book to show that not every day is perfect and that moving to Australia probably wouldn't help (it's part of the book...). My older son sympathises with Alexander and tells him to go to sleep and that tomorrow will be a better day.

I'm a 36-year old male and this has been my favorite book for as long as I can remember.

It's nice to know that even after all these years, when you have a bad day, it will be ok.

Even in Australia.
