“The zany illustrations suit the amusingly outraged tone of the text. Funny and original.” —Kirkus Reviews

Bad days—we all have them. But what do we do about them?

Meet Alicia and her trusty friend, Neptune. Alicia is usually a cheerful child who likes to dance very fast and stand on her head. What will she do when she wakes one morning feeling miserable? At first, none of Alicia’s clever and quirky remedies, such as moping in her favorite chair and writing in her notebook, seems to cure her gloom. Then in a place least expected, a delightful surprise awaits, and Alicia makes a joyous discovery.

Lisa Jahn-Clough has created a unique character with a spunky spirit all her own. Alicia will charm her way into the hearts of readers young and old on any day.

Reviews

"Deliberately childlike paintings put a comic edge on a terrible, rotten, very bad day. Those of, shall we say, artistic temperaments may find a kindred spirit in this debut book’s scowling narrator." Publishers Weekly
