Here's some stuff that happened at school to Alexander. At counting time the teacher said he left out sixteen. He said, "Who needs sixteen?" Paul said he wasn't his best friend any more. If you want to find out what happens next read this funny book!

I (Alex) like this book because my name is Alexander. I once had a bad day. I (Michael) like this book because this book has a lot of great words and details. The illustrations are nicely drawn and the book is very funny. We both like Alexander because he is the main character and he does a lot of funny things. I (Alex) felt silly as I read this book because this book is hilarious - nothing goes right for Alexander.

We recommend this book to people who like funny books. We also recommend this book to people who are having a bad day and to people whose day are not going that well. We say, "thumbs up" for this book!
