Publisher's Summary

When Alexander wakes up with gum in his hair, he thinks that maybe it’s going to be a bad day. When he trips on the skateboard by his bed and drops his sweater in the sink, he knows it’s going to be even worse than he thought. His brothers find fabulous prizes in their cereal boxes; he finds cereal. His best friends get fancy desserts in their lunch boxes; Mom forgets dessert. From being scrunched in the car on the way to school all the way to lima beans for supper and kissing on TV (yuck!), the day just keeps getting worse. It’s enough to make him want to move to Australia. A popular and prolific author of children’s books, Judith Viorst writes so that kids can recognize themselves in her stories. Johnny Heller’s sympathetic narration lets the child in everybody identify with Alexander’s predicament and his temptation to go somewhere far away.

    "Great for the car"

    This is a great narration, I love it, my kids love it and it helps with the car ride home. We already own the paperback so this is nice too when I'm too tired to read to them at night.

    I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.

    "It really is only 6 minutes long, but well read"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, because it was funny and I liked the narrator, but no because it is not worth purchasing as an audiobook. I just didn't realize that it was really only 6 minutes long. Since a movie was recently made out of it (and I have never seen the hard copy of the book) I thought there was going to be more to the story.
