Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by Judith Viorst | ScholasticToday Judith Viorst, author, poet, and journalist, celebrates her birthday. She became known as a writer through her Redbook columns, full of witty and stylish prose, often about family life. The Tenth Good Thing About Barney helps children process grief about the death of a beloved cat, as the family states positive things about him at his burial. She always knew she wanted to be an author and actually began her career writing about her parents at the age of seven. However, these pieces got her into a bit of hot water; she had constructed odes to her dead parents though they were still very much living—and annoyed. That experience, however, did not stop Viorst from using those near and dear to her as the subject matter for essays or books.
