Summary
  • Poor Alexander! He woke up with gum in his hair; his mom forgot to put dessert in his lunch bag; there were lima beans for dinner, and kissing on TV--even the cat refuses to sleep in his bed. Some days are just like that. He is consoled by the thought that other people have bad days too. Alexander's awful day is the perfect lead-off for this collection of funny, touching stories about the ups and downs of childhood--from imaginary monsters to saying goodbye to a family pet. Judith Viorst's insightful and humorous stories are the perfect antidote to any child's "terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day."
