Another book in the non fiction section that should be in fiction. Although based on true events it is not a non fiction fact based account of events instead it is a book about a boy who witnessed events as they happened. The story as taken as a fiction picture book based upon actual events is good and well drawn, however if you are looking for a Wikipedia style treatment on the life of Hachiko that you can use for a report this is not the book for that.
