Peanut is going to doggy school to learn to be a good dog. But he comes back sad and sullen after the first day. Crackers and Butter can't figure out what is going on, so they decide to each do something the next day at doggy school.

This is a mild bullying story, and it is solved in a way that would work with animals but may or may not work with humans. The antics of Butter help make this funny and lighten the tone greatly. Hand this lower grade graphic novel to animal lovers just getting into chapter books.

Peanut has to go to dog school and ends up getting bullied by the other little dogs. Cracker goes too, but he's with the middles and has to break out of his fenced area to go help Peanut. Meanwhile, Butter, the cat, can't sit idly by with Peanut coming home all sad from school, so Butter ends up trying to find ways to help Peanut too. Will they be able to stop the bullying?

This is a cute graphic novel. The friendship between the three and the ways they try to stop the bullying show care and teamwork.

The more graphic novels I read, the more I like this genre—this book is yet another example of why I like graphic novels. Peanut, Butter and Crackers: Fetch is the perfect choice for younger readers who like graphic novels, especially those who like dogs and cats. A quick moving plot, with a theme of friends helping friends, humor and beautiful illustrations are what I like about this book. Two thumbs up!

I think this just isn't the series for me. I like the cat parts but not being a dog person makes me not love the book. Plus in this one, Peanut is being bullying at dog school and I thought it was going to lead to a teachable moment but the bullies hear a rumor about him fighting the big dogs and then are nice to him all of a sudden so no lesson at all. I enjoyed the illustrations and some of the hijinks.

solid second volume. Some character development, a bit of humor, a bit heartwarming. I still miss the more bizarre humor of Stinky Cecil, but I suppose I could get used to this more simple, down-to-earth storytelling.

Another cute installment of Peanut, Butter, and Crackers. This time Peanut goes to doggy school. A couple of the older dogs pick on him, but he shows his bravery and wins them over. I like the friendship shown between the “fur family”, and Peanut is so stinkin’ cute!!!

Peanut is headed to dog school, and Crackers tags along, but the two are soon separated, and Peanut encounters a gang of bullies called the pint-size pack. Butter decides to find out what's bothering Peanut about school, and before you can count 1,2,3 a head on collision is about to erupt.

5 stars. More fun with the gang when Peanut and Crackers go to dog school. Love the littles bully gang (not that I love bullies, they are drawn so cute and aren’t bullies at the end) it’s all about the squeaky balls!

These easy comic/graphic novels are the Easy Readers for a new generation of young readers. This one is perfect for new readers who want a more complicated-but not too complicated!-book. Peanut & Crackers are cute and have a nice friendship with Butter the cat.

Catherine liked that the kitten named Butter said, "Kitty power!" and she was a mess. It was funny. She liked it well enough that she wants to read it again.

Perfect for beginning graphic novel readers. My five year old sat and listened attentively while I read the whole thing. Good lessons about caring for your family and solving conflict with others.

As per usual, super cute and adorable in every way possible. My favorite part was the gopher. "He doesn't even have a headlamp" was the best line! My daughter and I really enjoyed this one.

I love Peanut. He's new, he doesn't understand yet. For kids who love cats and dogs, this graphic novel is easy to read, adorable, but with a complex message about belonging.

Peanut is a puppy. He’s new to the family, and in need of some training at puppy school. His brother dog Crackers, gets to go play at doggy school too! But when Peanut is not having a god time at Puppy school, Crackers wants to help him! Even Butter the cat gets in on the adventure!

My four year old enjoyed this read aloud. Graphic novel style. We’ll follow the series.
