About The Book

Read the inspiration behind the new major film starring Steve Carrell, Jennifer Garner and Bella Thorne.

He could tell it was going to be a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day...

He went to sleep with gum in his mouth and woke up with gum in his hair...

When he got out of bed, he tripped over his skateboard and by mistake dropped his sweater in the sink while the water was running...

What do you do on a day like that? Well, you may think about going to Australia. You may also be glad to find that some days are like that for other people too. This funny and endearing story has delighted readers for more than forty years and is the inspiration behind the upcoming film, starring Jennifer Garner and Steve Carrell.
