Item description

Hachiko Waits This copy of Hachiko Waits by Leslea Newman and illustrated by Machiyo Kodaira is a PB. It was published by Scholastic in 2008. Condition: Very Good--shows slight handling. From School Library Journal Grade 3-5 Newman adds characters and incidents to flesh out this true story of an Akita who became a national symbol for loyalty and hope by waiting for 10 years at a Japanese commuter train station for his dead master to return. Hachi accompanies Professor Ueno to Shibuya Station every morning, then returns at three o'clock to welcome him back. After his owner dies suddenly at work, the dog continues his afternoon vigil for the rest of his life, earning such notoriety that the honorific "ko" is attached to his name. After his death, a statue in his memory is erected near his accustomed spot on the platform. Newman gives Hachiko a young human friend, Yasuo, who over a span of years helps to provide the dog with food and water. He later proposes to his future wife under that statue. Kodaira's ink-and-wash illustrations feature a noble-looking pooch surrounded by human admirers. Although the dialogue tends to be stilted, this more-developed alternative to Pamela S. Turner's Hachiko: The True Story of a Loyal Dog (Houghton, 2004) will effectively draw readers. John Peters, New York Public Library I do combine shipping. THANKS FOR LOOKING!
