When Alexander feels mad or dad he wants to move to Australia. But most of the time he likes it right where he is. So when his mom and dad say that they're moving a thousand miles away, Alexander decides that he's not going.

Never, Not ever. No way. Uh uh. N.O.

For how can he leave his best friend or his favorite sitter or Seymour the cleaners? he'd rather stay and live in a tree house or cave. And even though Nick calls him puke-face and Anthony says he's immature, he's not (Do you hear me? I mean it!) going to move.

This book is funny because this character goes to Mr. and Mrs. Oberdorfen's for Halloween without asking his mom or dad! The main character is Alexander. Alexander is funny because he was hiding in the pickle barrel. Enjoy the book!
