Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
From the moment Alexander wakes up and finds gum in his hair, everthing goes wrong! His brothers both get prizes in their cereal boxes, his best friend demotes him to third-best friend, there are lima beans for dinner, and there is kissing on TV. All kids experience this type of day, and will be glad to find they are not alone!
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Objecting loudly to his family's plans to relocate, the hero of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day "makes a gratifying return," said PW. Ages 5-8. (Aug.)
Publishers Weekly
Sometimes nothing beats a short dose of audio. Three recently released collections from HarperChildren's Audio just may fill the bill. Fans of Judith Viorst's picture book Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good Very Bad Day know that things look grim when Alexander wakes up with gum in his hair. Now listeners can relive Alexander's adventures and hear other selections including Rosie and Michael and The Tenth Good Thing About Barney, all found on Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good Very Bad Day and Other Stories and Poems by Judith Viorst, read by Blythe Danner.
