That morning, Alexander experiences a series of mishaps at school: he accidentally sets fire to his crush Becky Gibson's notebook; he finds out that his friends - including Becky, and even his best friend Paul - will all be attending Philip Parker Lincoln Melcher 's birthday party, instead of Alexander's, due to Philip's expensive party entertainment and popularity.

Guidelines for Philosophical Discussion
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.
