Alexander’s horribly bad day is something we all need to read sometimes. It’s strangely comforting knowing that someone else out there has terrible days where nothing works out, even if that someone is a character conceived by Judith Viorst and illustrated by Ray Cruz. The tone is spot on, so if you or your kids ever have a day where you feel like leaving everything and moving across the world, this book will resonate. On regular days, the book will be funny.
