First published in 1972, Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day introduced to the world a feisty young hero who soon captured the hearts of a generation. Since then Alexander has returned in Alexander, Who Used to Be Rich Last Sunday and Alexander, Who's Not (Do you hear me? I mean it!) Going to move, and his position as a classic character in children's literature is assured. Alexander is everyone's favorite boy, struggling against those obstacles that seem to get in the way of growing up, with the most formidable ones being his siblings. Here, all three Alexander stories are combined in one book — a perfect way for Alexander to be introduced to a whole new generation of certain fans.

My daughter says her son {for whom I bought the stories} absolutely loves Alexander. He is 6 yrs. old & is in kindergarten. I'd give it a 5 star rating. Nancy Hanley
