I still remember this book after having read it in elementary school, then watching the film. It's a great book that can apply to anyone :)

"Some days are like that. Even in Australia." Really, who hasn't wanted to pack it in and move far, far away after a particularly bad day? Alexander's story is one that we can all relate to, and even as we experience all the bad things happening to him we know that all will be well tomorrow. Funny and reassuring, especially for the younger school-age set.

This is one of my favorite children's books. Every one has bad days. This is the story of Alexander who wakes up to a horrible day. Nothing can seem to go right. But in the end, he goes to bed where he reflects that some days are simply terrible, horrible and no good. It is implied that all will be well tomorrow.
I love this book because there are days where it seems everything and everyone is ganging up against us. But then the day ends and another day beings and all is well. I used to use this book in my classroom for 4th and 5th graders. We talked about bad days and how to cope.

This book was good. If Alexander didn't get a seat by the window, he would be car sick and he compared everything to Australia.

Alexander’s story perfectly captures how a child of any age feels when he/she is having a day where nothing goes right.
