Reviews

"Hachiko embodies all the best qualities of a dog. He is loyal, brave, gentle, and childlike. Based on a true story from Japan, this is a beautiful tribute to a historic dog." --Book Sense Pick of the List, Fall 2004"Lesl a Newman has done an amazing thing. She has written a book that is both profoundly sad and hopeful at the same time. When the world needs such a story, Hachiko Waits shows us the very best in life: loyalty, devotion, our ability to love, to nurture, to care about someone other than ourselves--all taught by a beloved, intelligent and heroic dog. The voice and the art are authentically Japanese, though the heart of the book and its meanings cross all cultures. This book is for all ages. I love it." --Patricia MacLachlan, Newbery Award-winning author of Sarah, Plain and Tall"This will be popular with dog lovers; consider having a packet of tissues on hand." --Booklist
