"Where Triplets Go, Trouble Follows", written by, Michelle Poploff, is one of many series. Particularity this book is about the triplets, Daisy, Lily, and Violet. The triplets are not identical, they have different traits and interest. Lily enjoys reading and writing poems. Daisy is athletic, she enjoys playing baseball. Violet is unorganized and does not like science. The triplets are supportive of one another and are loyal to their family. The girls are bullied by this girl in their grade named, Fronstine. Frostine asked the girls, "how did your sister ever make the team?" they ignored her comment and cheered on Daisy, even though she was having a bad game. The triplets receive a gift from their grandparents that ends up helping the girls succeed their goals. The girls receive a puppy named Trouble. Trouble helps Violet with her science fair project by giving her the idea about genes because he has blue eyes just like all of them. Trouble helps Lily get through her fear of speaking in front of strangers when she entered into a poem contest for a dog store, which she won. Regardless of the sisters interest, the girls will always have each others back and care for one another. ( )

I won't usually pick up Holiday House's chapter books, because the covers almost always look amateurish and unattractive and I know, from sad experience, it's hard to get kids to pick them up. However, this cover isn't bad and some kids are really into the twins/triplets thing.

Daisy, Lily, and Violet aren't identical, especially in their interests. Daisy is sporty, Lily likes to write poetry, and Violet is dramatic (and kind of bossy). When Violet fails her science test, she and her sisters have to figure out a way to help her overcome the problem without doing her work for her. Meanwhile, Lily is trying to overcome stage fright and Daisy is having her own problems. Just when Violet thinks things can't get any worse, realizing how she and her sisters have both differences and similarities gives her an idea and there's a happy ending for all.

The black and white illustrations are pleasant but not particularly memorable. To be honest, that's pretty much how I felt about the whole story. It meanders rather. The plot wanders from the sisters' troubles at school, the stereotypical mean girl, siblings squabbles, to a sudden diversion into the girls thinking their grandparents (two different sides) are dating.

Verdict: A light, amusing story but not a required purchase. If you are bulking out your beginning chapter section or have a lot of twin/triplet fans, you might consider this, but it's definitely additional.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0823432890, Hardcover)

Girls take charge in this energetic chapter book about the trials and triumphs of three sisters who are fraternal triplets.

Violet, Daisy, and Lily couldn't be more different in some respects. Violet loves being the center of attention, Daisy cares mostly about sports, and Lily likes to hide away in her books. However, the thing all three have in common is that they are triplets in the fun and surprise-filled Divine family.

In this short novel each girl has a moment to shine as Violet triumphs at the science fair; Daisy gets glasses and recovers her baseball moxie now that she can see; and Lily enters a writing contest to win dog-training lessons for their new Sheltie, Trouble.

Lily, Daisy, and Violet Divine, triplets, have different interests and like to do things on their own, but they pull together when they need to, whether to find out their grandparents' secret, create a good science fair project, or teach their new dog to stop chewing.… (more)
