The perennially popular tale of Alexander's worst day is now a board book that belongs on every child's bookshelf.
Alexander is not having a great day. He has to endure gum in his hair, sitting in the middle of the backseat, third-best-friend status, no dessert at lunch, lima beans, railroad pajamas, and kissing on TV--all in one day! Maybe he'll just move to Australia.
This funny and endearing story has delighted readers for more than forty years, and now it's available as Classic Board Book with artwork that showcases Alexander--and only Alexander--in full color, underscoring the misery (and comedy) of his awful day.
