"What 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)
