Plot Summary. One of the all-time classics. I don't think my kid was overly impressed with it either. Although I did not appreciate the content so Okay, I did not like this book.George C. Do you think Alexander is feeling both hurt and angry at the same time. A childless couple bury a box in their backyard, containing all of their wishes for an infant?

From the moment Alexander wakes up, everything goes wrong! He wakes up with gum in his hair, fights with his friends, and has to eat lima beans for dinner. At the end of his rough day, Alexander learns some days are just like that. All kids experience this type of day, and will be glad to find they are not alone! He wakes up with gum in his hair, doesn't get a seat by the window during carpool, doesn't get dessert in his lunch, is rebuffed by his friends on the playground, has to get a cavity fixed at the dentist, and has to eat lima beans for dinner. The difficult situations Alexander finds himself in, and his way of dealing with them, are what makes this book ripe for philosophical discussion. The book addresses issues such as moods and emotion, envy, fight and flight responses, the concept of art, and making mistakes.
