Alexander wakes up and already things aren’t going his way. With gum in his hair, Alexander starts his day, only to find that the bad luck just keeps coming. He has to deal with not getting a window seat on his way to school, missing the dessert in his lunch, getting passed over by his friends, finding out he has a cavity, and even worse, having to eat lima beans for dinner! While he constantly wishes he could move to Australia, where presumably people don’t have bad days, his mother reassures him that bad days are just a part of life.
