Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day is a children's book that any child, and any parent can relate to. We would read this book often when my son was much younger. It helped that my son shares the namesake and has had plenty of terrible, horrible, no good, very bad days.
The writing is cute and flows well. It tells the story of Alexander who has a day where everything just seems to go wrong. In his childhood wisdom, he wants to move to Australia. The conclusion to the book is the realization that some times you just have bad days.
The pictures are black pen sketches. In the limited edition version Alexander is represented in color.
Overal, it is a cute book. It has been a classic in our house, and I can continue to see it being read for many years to come.
