Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by Judith Viorst and Illustrated by Ray Cruz.
It’s a good book to bring out when a child is having one of those “terrible, horrible, no good, very bad” days. Before long they are giggling and forgetting all about what got them “down in the dumps”.
Even older children like it and remember it.
This paperback edition was published July 15, 1987, so it has been around for quite some time . . . and I think it is one that will be around for a lot longer.
If you’re looking for a gift that keeps on giving, I’d suggest Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day . . . it all begins when he wakes up with gum stuck in his hair . . .
