Alexander knew it was going to be a terrible day when he woke up with gum in this 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 handsome new edition of Judith Viorst's classic picture book is sure to charm readers of all ages.

Judith Viorst says that she has been writing always -- "or at least since I was seven or eight, when I composed an ode to my dead parents, both of whom were alive and well and, when they read my poem, extremely annoyed." She has written many books for children, including the acclaimed Alexander and the Terrible Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, If I Were in Charge of the World...and Other Worries, and I'll Fix Anthony as well as several books of poetry and prose for adults. She is also a contributing editor to Redbook magazine. Mrs. Viorst lives in Washington, D.C., with her husband, Milton, a political writer. They have three sons -- Anthony, Nicholas, and Alexander.

  • Some days are like that ...

    Poor Alexander. I have enjoyed reading and sharing this book many times. I have read it to my children. I have read it to school children. I have read it to church groups. I have gifted it to friends and associates. Whenever I am having a terrible day, I think of Alexander. When things seem horrible, Alexander comes to mind. Days that are not good, days that are very bad: I remember poor Alexander. And I feel lighter. Because some days are like that.
