A super hilarious book, we follow Alexander and this awful day as it unfolds Infront of him. On this particular day, nothing can seem to go right and it's really making Alexander mad. This book teaches kids that everyone has bad days eventually and it teaches them to help face them. I would say that this book is perfect for kids around the ages of 5-8

A black and white illustrated book that everyone can relate to! Alexander could tell it was going to be a bad day after he woke up with gum in his hair, since he went to bed with gum in his hair. As he is getting out of bed he trips on his skateboard. He visits his dad at work and things go wrong there too. When he returns home there is kissing on t.v. and that is not good either. It doesn't matter where Alexander goes something bad happens. In the end he thinks about going/moving to Australia. This book is a great reminder that even though bad things happen, there are good things that happen in our day too. ( )

This book had a lot of potential to teach the concept that bad days happen, but it failed to teach any ways to cope with it. ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
For Robert Lescher, with love and thanks.
First words
I went to sleep with gum in my mouth and now there's gum in my hair and when I got out of bed this morning I tripped on the skateboard and by mistake I dropped my sweater in the sink while the water was running and I could tell it was going to be a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.
