The perennially popular tale of Alexander’s worst day is now a board book that belongs on every child’s bookshelf.

Alexander is not having a great day. He has to endure gum in his hair, sitting in the middle of the backseat, third-best-friend status, no dessert at lunch, lima beans, railroad pajamas, and kissing on TV—all in one day! Maybe he’ll just move to Australia.

This funny and endearing story has delighted readers for more than forty years, and now it’s available as Classic Board Book with artwork that showcases Alexander—and only Alexander—in full color, underscoring the misery (and comedy) of his awful day.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super cute read! I remember this story from when I was kid. When I saw it was still around, I didn't even have to think twice about purchasing it for my boys. My almost 4 year old LOVES the silliness that poor Alexander endures through his very tough day. This story promotes great discussions with my son about how we all have bad days sometimes and what we can do to handle it. A fun read from beginning to end!
