One thing I found interesting was that Hachiko seemed to be able to tell time and was trained really well. If I were a character in this book I would be Yasou because he is a caring and intelligent young boy who took care of Hachiko. One thing I liked about this book was that Hachiko was a loyal and caring dog. I was surprised this was actually a true story from Japan. They even have a statue of Hachiko at the train station today. Unfortunately, the movie is not very true to the book.
The people who should read this should must be able to read very well. I think if you are a fifth grader you might enjoy this book better than a third or fourth grader.
