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 has a very bad day. Sometimes adults have bad days also. It is a great story.

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.

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.

This is an excellent kid's book. I remember how much I loved it when I was little, so I picked it up to read to my daughter. It's just as much fun as I remembered it. It's nice to see that there are some books that hold up over time.

Alexander knew it as going to be a horrible day when he woke up with gum in his hair. This is a very short idea about the book. I think you will enjoy this book as much as I have.

Well, it qualifies as at least a semi-classic of children's literature, but the sociologist in me tells me that it encapsulates a lot of what's wrong with American children. Stop whining! Millions of children would love to have food like lima beans to eat, or any kind of pajamas, or a mother and father. This kid is going to be a problem later in life.

This darling book follows Alexander through his emotionally challenging day. The book is written matter-of-factly, and accepting of Alexander's emotions, and ends on a better note.

What a great book!!!! Every child has a bad day! What a great book to read with your child when they do. My son loves this book and ths book validates that sometimes days like that happen, but it's o.k.

One of my all-time favorite children's books!!!

I've read this so many times I can quote from memory - yet, it never gets old. It's fantastic. When my daughter lets me pick out her bedtime stories at night I almost always choose this book as one of them.

Enjoyable for kids and adults alike - after all, who wouldn't want to move to Australia after a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad 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.

I love this book! You know when you wake up and stub your toe, spill your coffee, get a flat tire, and manage to burn dinner? All in the same day? That's what this book is about. Some days are just bad days, but it's okay.

This is supposed to charm readers?!? What a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad book. If you weren't in a bad mood before you read this book, you will be after. First off, who wants to read all this terrible stuff to their child? Second, let's not teach our children that just because something happened when they got out of bed, the whole day will be bad. Third, the book never does get good in the end. The kid just keeps on having a terrible day and no one listens to him. I read this one time, and now it's going in the garbage because I don't think any child should be exposed to this.
