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

Chuckle at the trials of a put-upon hero in this classic picture book. From the moment Alexander wakes up, his day starts going badly. Gum in his hair, a sweater in the sink… what else can possibly go wrong? Well… getting smushed in the middle seat of the car, lunch with no dessert, a dental cavity, witnessing kissing on television AND being forced to sleep in railroad-train pyjamas. No one seems to care! Join this crabby kid as he muddles through the murkiest of days, in a story that will have you laughing out loud. His day is so disastrous he wants to move to Australia. Can Mum convince him that tomorrow won’t be so terrible?
