My mother sent me a box of books from my childhood, and I have to admit that I had forgotten about good old Alexander. Chris is telling his father about all of the very naughty things his horse, Alexander (the red horse, with green stripes ... just like Chris' pajamas) has done all day long. Daddy is pretty calm about all of these horrible things ... which turn out to have been done by Chris. How does Daddy know? "Alexander told me."This is a cute book for kids that teaches them about taking responsibilities for their own actions. The illustrations are adorable, too.
