    Beautifully written story for children or adults.

    Hachiko's story of devotion and unending dedication to his master will touch the heart of anyone who loves or has ever loved a dog. This wonderfully written and illustrated book is a true testament to Hachiko and to the unbreakable bond between human and canine. Recommended.

    Best Book Ever

    Loyalty, devotion and love. A true story about a faithful dog, and his beloved owner, who live in Japan. Hachiko is only a puppy and has a special bond with Professor Ueno. They have increasing friendship and Hachiko even waits for his master to come home each night. When something happens to Professor Ueno, poor Hachiko doesn¿t know what to do. Hachiko waits all daylong but no Professor Ueno. Staying in the same spot, Hachiko can¿t even be persuaded to come home with Yasou, his new friend. This loyal pet eats, sleeps and dies sitting in the same spot. Hachiko has had a difficult and disappointing life, yet he is rewarded to join his beloved master once again. This book is full of loyalty, hope, love and courage. A book all about friendship, recommended for dog lovers. This story is based on a true story with some fiction characters. RECOMMENDED FOR ALL!!!

    One of the Best Books I Have Ever Read!

    If you love dogs and how loyal they are to there owners this is a book for you. It is a book where Hachi comes back to the train station every day before 3:00. One day his master doesn¿t come back and Hachi waits for ten years. Hachiko Waits was written by Leslea Newman, and was illustrated by Machiyo Kodaria. It was published by Henry Holt and Company in 2004. The cost is $16.95. The conflict is when the professor doesn¿t come back on the train. The main characters are Hachi, the professor, Yasuo, and the ticket master. The theme is to never give up on anything like Hachi didn¿t give up on the professor. This story toke place in China. This book is for girls and boys 8-10. I think Hachi is very loyal to the professor because he always came back for him. That is why Hackiko Waits is one of the best books I have ever read.
