My life begins! / Patricia MacLachlan ; illustrated by Daniel Miyares.

MacLachlan, Patricia, (author.). Miyares, Daniel, (illustrator.).


"Jacob is nine years old when his life changes. He wants a litter of puppies. But instead his parents have a different surprise. Jacob will be an older brother soon. And there won't be only one new baby. There will be three! When thr triplets are born, Jacob thinks puppies are cuter. The babies look identical to him and he gives them a name: the Trips. As the triplets become unique and more special with each day, Jacob starts to wonder if the Trips is still a good name for them. They aren't puppies or a bunch of bananas, and they aren't just the Trips anymore. What should he call them that will show what they mean to him? Can he figure out their forever name? And will he ever get a puppy?" -- Adapted from dust jacket.
