From the Publisher
Alexander is not going to leave his best friend Paul. Or Rachel, the best babysitter in the world. Or the Baldwins, who have a terrific dog named Swoozie. Or Mr. and Mrs. Oberdorfer, who always give great treats on Halloween. Who cares if his father has a new job a thousand miles away? Alexander is not -- Do you hear him? He Means it! -- going to move.
Alexander's back, facing another of childhood's trials and tribulations with Judith Viorst's trademark humor and keen sense of what's important to kids.

From Our Editors
Poor Alexander. He just doesn't want to move. I mean he most definitely does not want to move 1,000 miles across the country with his family and leave behind his friends, his soccer team and his babysitter. A capital NO! In Alexander, Who's Not (Do You Hear Me? I Mean It!) Going to Move, Judith Viorst continues her stories about the precocious and loveable Alexander. Children will love this very readable tale and will delight to Robin Preiss Glassser's hilarious illustrations.
