Have you ever had a bad day? I mean a really, really bad day? Well, this is a story about one really bad day in the life of a ten-year-old boy named Jamal Ahmad.

The day starts off well enough for Jamal; he feels very happy and excited. But then things suddenly change from bad to annoying, to awful, to horrible, to horrendous, and just when he thinks they can’t get any worse… things become downright abominable!

This is a wonderful story about how a young boy faces a lot of mishaps throughout his normal day. However, even though he feels very sad and disheartened about the day’s events, he soon comes to realize and understand that his experiences are not necessarily ‘bad’ after all...
