    Burned in my brain forever. First, because of the wonderful list of descriptors in the title, repeated throughout the story. I must have hit it at the right time in language development, because it stuck in my mind. I think I used that phrase "terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day," for a couple of decades, usually in jest or as a way of mocking my drama.

    My son and I adore this book! It is a wonderful story about a kid who is really having a tough time. Maybe he should move to Australia? The artwork is wonderful. This is the PERFECT book for kids who are feeling the blues and need a bit of perspective. Fantastic.

    Who hasn't had this sort of a day? For Alexander, it starts out bad and just gets worse and worse. A great book to share with a kid who gets frustrated when 'everything seems to go wrong for me!' I love the illustrations in this, the simple situations gone bad, and Alexander's very real reactions to them. Who hasn't had this sort of a day?

    I bought this book in 1989. Well, my parents bought it for me. There's a half-peeled-off sticker that says, MY BOOK in red bubble/block lettering with "Philip" scrawled on the name line. I was in first grade. I loved this book as a kid. I read it tonight to my daughters for the first time. I'm pretty sure they didn't understand the message that everybody has bad days, no matter where you are, but it was fun reading to them - all tucked in and what not.

I wish I found a Junior Undercover Agent code ring in my breakfast cereal this morning, but I didn't. I didn't either, Alexander. (Granted, I did have coffee cake. One of the perks of growing up I guess.)

    I remember liking this book when I was a kid, but now it's kind of a downer. Like, I guess it's good that kids can empathize. There are going to be bad days. But still. Downerrrrr.

    One of the all-time classics. I loved this one as a kid, and I love it all the more as a grown-up reading it to my boys. I'm dimly aware they made a movie based on the book, though I have no idea why. If you watched the movie and haven't read this book, I fear you're done yourself a great injustice. Please consider picking up the book. It's well worth your time. One of the all-time classics. I loved this one as a kid, and I love it all the more as a grown-up reading it to my boys.

    I thought this book was an appropriate book to read. Alexander is having a horrible day. He wakes up out of sorts and the day is one big horror show. I think what I like most about this story is the end. The mother comes in and she doesn't try to make it better or make light of it. She says, some days are like that. Basically - this is life and it's ok. This is part of the human experience. That is the best part to me. I was sick yesterday, which is why I didn't post.

I feel like I'm back in the land of the living today. It was a rough day. The artwork is black and white drawings, nothing fancy. The kids related to this story instantly. Both of them were relating stories of bad days. They both gave the book 4 stars.

    "Some days are like that... Even in Australia." This is one of those books that has so many levels (like a parfait, or an onion). It begs for multiple readings. On one level it is the story of Alexander, an ordinary kid whose day doesn't go as he wants it to. Yet it is also a treatise on the human condition - our selfishness and self-centeredness, the travails and hardships that assail each person's life, and the resolute courage needed to stand our ground and live our lives where we find ourselv "Some days are like that...

    Alexander wakes up with gum in his hair and his day just goes downhill from there. His breakfast is no fun, his best friend has new besties and the shoes that he wants are out of stock leaving him with the plain ones, not to mention, he has a visit to the dentist looming in his future. His parents aren’t exactly sympathetic and it still isn’t over because before his day is done he is going to have to watch kissing on television and eat lima beans for dinner.

His parents aren’t exactly sympathetic and it still isn’t over because before his day is done he is going to have to watch kissing on television and eat lima beans for dinner. (Actually, I think I got off easy. I HATE lima beans!!) The pencil and ink sketches by Ray Cruz are the perfect medium for conveying Alexander’s day. Alexander is an ‘every kid’ as the success of the entire series proves and this book is just a classic. Which is why it is still in classrooms and libraries all over the world after nearly fifty years because it perfectly captures the fact that bad days just happen sometimes, even in Australia.

    “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” (whew what a title) is a children’s book by Judith Viorst along with illustrations by Ray Cruz and it is about how a young boy named Alexander who ends up having a terrible day. “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” is truly one of the most memorable books ever created! I have clearly enjoyed this book as Judith Viorst has done a great job at writing this book and Ray Cruz’s illustrations also contribute great “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” (whew what a title) is a children’s book by Judith Viorst along with illustrations by Ray Cruz and it is about how a young boy named Alexander who ends up having a terrible day. “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” is truly one of the most memorable books ever created! I have clearly enjoyed this book as Judith Viorst has done a great job at writing this book and Ray Cruz’s illustrations also contribute greatly to the story’s humor. Judith Viorst makes the story extremely humorous and creative as the book is narrated by Alexander himself as he tells the audience about the terrible day he is having and many children will definitely relate to Alexander’s situation as the situation appears from his own perspective. I also understand Alexander’s predicament since I had my share of bad days and I wished that I was somewhere else rather than the place I am at now when I am having a bad day. Ray Cruz’s illustrations are simply beautiful and hilarious, especially the image of Alexander with his matted hair and a scowl on his face all throughout the book. I also loved the black and white coloring used in this book as it reflects an old-fashioned feel to the story in a modern world. “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” is truly one of the most inspirational books for children who have had their share of bad days and I’m definitely sure that many children will enjoy this book as much as I did! I would recommend this book to children ages four and up since there is nothing inappropriate in this book. Review is also on: Rabbit Ears Book Blog

    Not so much for preschool because it's a more formulated story and it's in black and white, but my 5 yr old loves it. About a boy who just has a bad day, something any kid can relate to.

    I know this is a beloved classic, but I just didn't care for it. I think my kid just takes it literally, that this boy is having a bad day and nothing is fair, and sympathizes with him. But from an adult's perspective, he's an obnoxious little whiner who resorts to saying mean things and hitting, plus he does a lot of blaming his mom for things that don't go right ("guess whose mom forgot dessert?") which sets a disrespectful example.

But that said, younger kids do like it anyway. Really, though, who goes to bed with gum in their mouth?! He should be glad he didn't choke in his sleep -- he's lucky to get any terrible new days.

    One of my favorite books ever. In middle school, I used it as a monologue to audition for a part. I got it because the director had never heard of it and thought it was hilarious. It wasn't hard to get right, either, as it's easy to whine and pout and act angry. I hear there's a movie coming out which is odd. I have no idea what they'll do because there's not enough plot here to fill a short, but just in case, I recommend you read it now before you hear anything about any film.

One of my favorite lines is: At school, Mrs. Dickens liked Paul's picture of the sailboat more than my picture of the invisible castle.And yes, the illustration showed a blank piece of paper. The illustrations are black and white but they're perfect for the story. 5++++ stars

    A wonderful introduction to pessimistic philosophy and nihilist literature for little ones. I hadn't read this since I was a kid, but I knew what to expect. Alexander was going to have a bad day, but on the last page he would go to bed and dream sweet dreams and wake up to a better tomorrow. "It's okay to have bad days. We will have a better one tomorrow." That's not what I found; the ending shook me to my very core.

Alexander was going to have a bad day, but on the last page he would go to bed and dream sweet dreams and wake up to a better tomorrow. "It's okay to have bad days. We will have a better one tomorrow." That's not what I found; the ending shook me to my very core. I cracked it open with my two year old son last night and to my surprise, even though the illustrations are black and white and it takes awhile to flip the pages, he sat rapt the whole time. Alexander woke up with gum in his hair, he tripped on his skateboard, and he dropped his sweater in the sink. He got the worst seat in the car on the way to school, and the school day was more of the same: suffering, drudgery, and existential pain. He lost his best friend, his mom forgot to pack him dessert, and after school he went to the dentist, who discovered a cavity. Throughout all this, Alexander had hope, and his hope had a name. Australia. When something terribly horrible happened to Alexander, he'd think to himself, "Tomorrow, I'm going to go to Australia." It's a refrain he repeated to himself often throughout the day, and it's the only way he got through the torment. Australia was his land of milk and honey; no matter how bad this is right now, I can always go to Australia where everything will be alright. But at the end of the day, after he's tucked himself into his bed of sorrows, his mother pecks him on his cheek and delivers this final blow: some days are like this. Some days just kick you in the pants, over and over again. "Even in Australia." You can imagine Alexander's psyche shattering at this point. Australia is supposed to be the one place that is safe! Australia is the escape from the terror, the horror, the no good, very bad slog of daily existence! But pain permeates everything and knows no bounds. It is all. The final image of the book is Alexander in his bed, inexpressible anguish on his face, as if an invisible hand is wrapped around his neck. This is the bed that has been made for him, and he must lie in it. There is no escape. There is no relief. There is no Australia.

    This picturebook is famous among teachers. The story is about a naughty boy who describes how his day went from morning to night time. Alexander, the youngest boy in the story, and the narrator as well, had to endure bad incidents in school, at the dentist office, with his brothers and mom while shopping for shoes, at his Dad’s office, and back at home. I have to admit there is humor in all these bad things happening to this boy throughout the day. I connect to the story because I have two boys This picturebook is famous among teachers.

As a teacher and mom, I have seen this kind of behavior many times. All, I have to say is “Life is not fair for five years old boys here or in Australia!” The illustrations are interesting. After reading about the illustrator, I found he that Ray Cruz grew up in New York City and has been drawing since he was five years old. In addition to his work as an illustrator, he has had extensive experience in textile design and graphic art. By knowing this, now I realized why his illustrations are so rich in textures and they look a bit like comics. This picture book is always a hit in the classroom. Great idea for a children's book!

    I am reading “Alexander and the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day” by Judith Viorst. The book is about a young boy named Alexander. His bad day starts when he wakes up with gum in his hair from when he was sleeping. Many bad things happened to this kid that makes it a bad day.

This is not a book for young kids to read. If they read this, then they will feel the need to act the same way. The book takes place in modern day. It takes place in a town. The boy goes to many places. He goes to the dentist, to school, out on the street, and at his own house. The main character is Alexander. He is a young boy who is probably about seven years old. He is quite a mischievous boy and is usually messing up in some way. He gets upset a lot if something does not go his way. I did not like this book that much.

I would not recommend this to any adults who want to read their child a book for the same reason.

    I read the book Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by Judith Viorst. It was about a young boy named Alex who wakes up to a start of a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day! He didn't get the window seat on the way to school and forgot the number sixteen during counting time. It gets worse, his mom forgot to pack him a dessert and took them to the dentist after school.

Alex learns that moving to Australia would not solve his problems. Every once in a while you just seem to have a bad day. The main characters in this book were Alexander, Anthony, Nick, and Paul. Alexander was the boy who tried everything he could to make his day a little better but never could. Anthony and Nick were Alexanders brothers who were not very nice to him. Paul was Alexander's ex best friend. The setting takes place in present time. It starts out at Alexander's house where he wakes up and eats breakfast. Then he carpools with Mrs.Gibson to get to school, then to the dentist. Afterwards, ending up at his father's office. Alexander is never at one place for very long so the story does not have one main setting. I enjoyed this book by Judith Viorst. It was a cute how Alexander never seemed to get a break, but for some reason thought if he moved to Australia it would be better. I would recommend this book to anyone that needs a cute little storytime book.
