He should have known, Alexander should have known when he went to bed chewing gum, that the worst was yet to come. Then he woke up with gum in his hair, and it all went down hill from there. Thank goodness, Alexander knows how to express himself. Keeping all of this misery inside would do no good at all. One thing after another, but somehow Alexander survived. That is the really good thing about stories, we can all learn from them. Parents/teachers will like reading this book, it is so much fun for the children to listen to the sing song verse. The children will laugh with their adults and will ask questions about Alexander's day. They can explore ways to get around no good days.
The author, Judith Viorst, has been known to me for years. I like her writing a great deal. The illustrations by Ray Cruz are colorful and vibrant and depict Alexander and his misadventures for us all to enjoy. What great fun!

I would count this as a classic book!
His favourite saying is 'this is the worst day ever!' , so I had to buy this when I saw it.
Fortunately he can see the funny side, and we can have a giggle about some of his worst days too. Lovely.
