Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Written by Judith Viorst • Illustrated by Ray Cruz

This story is about a little boy named Alexander and his terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. On his terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day, he went to sleep with gum in his mouth and woke up with gum in his hair. His brothers got toys from the cereal box and he didn't. He said, "I think I'll move to Australia." He didn't get the window seat in the car, he didn't get dessert at lunch, his teacher didn't like his picture, and the dentist told him he was the only one who got a cavity. What a day!

I recommend this book to everybody in the whole world because I know anybody can have a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. I love this book and I think you should read it too!
