a good dog you are. What a fine dog you are. Hachi, you're the best dog
in all of Japan." That's what Professor Eizaburo Ueno says to his beloved
Akita-ken Hachi every morning before boarding the nine o' clock train to
go to work. And every afternoon, exactly at five minutes until three o'
clock, Hachi returns to greet his master. But what happens when the Professor
doesn't come back?
In my opinion, Hachiko Waits is one of the best stories ever written. I loved this book. I think animal lovers would love this book because it's a heartwarming tale of a man and his loyal dog. (Lindsey N., Maroa-Forsyth Middle School, IL)
