All he ever wanted to do was fly.
Three-time Coretta Scott King Award-winning author Angela Johnson and New York Times bestselling illustrator Loren Long invite readers to ponder a band of undercelebrated World War II heroes -- the Tuskegee Airmen. With fleeting prose and transcendent imagery, this book by the masterful author/artist duo reveals how a boy's love of flight takes him on a journey from the dusty dirt roads of Alabama to the war-torn skies of Europe and into the hearts of those who are only now beginning to understand the part these brave souls played in the history of America.
Loren Long has illustrated greeting cards, book jackets and magazines. "My Dog, My Hero" is his first children's book. He lives near Cincinnati, Ohio with his wife and their two sons.
