FETCH! With Ruff Ruffman: Doggie Duties by Jamie Michalak
Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman: Doggie Duties by Jamie Michalak (Candlewick Entertainment, 2014; $14.99, Ages 6-9) is reviewed by Rita Zobayan.
Ruff Ruffman is the lovable canine host of the PBS Kids’ show, Fetch! My daughters greatly enjoy watching that educational and fun program. In that vein, Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman: Doggie Duties presents the reader with Ruff’s latest dilemma, a broken toilet. What’s a desperate dog to do?! Too proud to use a litter box, Ruff decides he must learn how to make a space toilet. After all, if NASA can do it, why can’t he?!
Fetch!’s colorful cast of characters, including the feline show supervisor, Blossom, and Ruff’s assistant, the mouse Chet, join Ruff for his adventure. Complete with a science activity on how to clean dirty water with a filter, this book is sure to please and teach.

My daughter aspired to become a “Fetcher” for years, since the live action portion of RUFF is filmed in Boston. Alas, once she became old enough to be eligible, the show was no longer in production! A pity, since it was an engaging and educational show. We still love repeats and we’ll probably love these books too!
Maybe they’ll bring it back?
