Title: Alexander and the Wonderful, Excellent, Terrific Ninety Days

Author: Judith Viorst

Summary: Do you remember the classic children’s book Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day? Well, Alexander is grown up and has three children of his own, five, three and four months. Their Washington, D.C. house is undergoing renovation, so Grandma (Judith Viorst) invites them to stay for 90 days. “Don’t judge, advise, or criticize” and “accept who they are” becomes her mantra.

An empty nest home with wine velvet upholstery becomes the playpen for an active family. This is a delightful and witty quick read – only 113 pages.

Who will like this book?: Although mothers of any age would enjoy this book, it would especially ring true for grandmothers. Grandfathers might enjoy it also.
