After watching the movie for the first time, and after wiping away the tears, I immediately thought, this is a story my students must learn. After learning in depth about the Asian civilizations in World History, my students read the book. Let me tell you, they could not put the book down! If it was up to them, they would have stayed with me all day just to read the book. Students learning the history of a culture truly allowed them to engage with the reading; with every historical reference, they sat a bit taller. Due to student response, I will say this as the most powerful unit I have ever taught. I also recommend visiting the author's website for additional classroom resources.

Great story of this loyal dog. I had seen the movie of same, but heard the original story was a bit different. So to read the real story was a delight. It is more of a children's book, but I enjoyed reading it anyway. The book is in excellent shape & arrived to me packed well, & arrived well. This dog was the most loyal I've every heard of.

After watching, 'Hachiko, A Dog's Tale' which is in my opinion the greatest dog character ever, I was interesting to know more about the real man and his dog. The information flashed on the screen basically gives you only the man's name, location, and the years that the actual events took place. In 'Hachiko Waits', I expected the actual true story of the Japanese professor and Hachiko. Unfortunatley, the book is another re-creation of the story, not the true story. Perhaps this book would appeal to a child but as an adult dog lover, inquisitive about a unique relationship of extreme loyality between man and dog, this book didn't accomplish that for me.

I bought this book as a gift for my husband in accompaniment to the movie with Richard Geer (spelling?) I was unaware it was written for younger folk, 9-13, but he said it was still well written and very good reading. The book touched on facts the movie didn't -- forgot what they are now -- but the book gave some additional information. Very emotional reading and a good lesson for younger readers. I recommend this praiseworthy story!!!

must read about a wonderful faithful dog.

I bought this book for my 23 y.o. daughter who loves animals and reading. After seeing the recent release "Hachi ~ A Dog's Story" starring Richard Gere....I knew she would love this book. She read the book first....then saw the movie. The book is set in Japan, where the actual events took place. She could really picture the characters....Hachi, The Professor, etc. by the authors descriptive verse. Although the movie is set in the USA and brought to modern times, the story....absolutely true...is hard to believe. The loyalty of this beautiful Akita dog is a real wonder. Very inspiring and a must read (and see) for the animal lover.

If you want to read a terrific book, to yourself or to a younger member of the family, read this book. After the book, see the movie with Richard Gere. It will tear your heart out. So wonderful. I just look at the cover of the book and cry. Made me love my little pug dog even more! Make sure you have plenty of kleenex on hand!!!!
Beautiful story every young man and young lady should read. Touching and endearing, this story teaches loyalty and compassion. We got the book before purchasing the movie. I prefer to do both. The movie was great also, but there's something that penetrates just a little bit deeper when you spend a quiet evening with a book. A must read actually for all ages. Enjoy something simple and sweet for a change!!!
