Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2014 Fall)
This is an oversize board book edition of the classic story about a boy encountering injustice and just plain rotten luck all day long. As in a 2010 edition of the book, the pictures have been selectively colorized: on every page, reddish-haired Alexander is brightly clad while everything around him remains in original black and white. It doesn't ruin the story, nor does it add much.
