Description:

All he ever wanted to do was fly. Three-time Coretta Scott King Award-winning author Angela Johnson andNew York Timesbestselling 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.

Angela Johnson was born on June 18, 1961 in Tuskegee, Alabama. She attended Kent State University and worked with Volunteers in Service to America (VISTA) as a child development worker. She is currently a free-lance writer of children's books. In 1999 she won the Coretta Scott King Author's Award for her novel entitled, Heaven. She won the award a second time with Toning the Sweep. In 2004, her novel The First Part Last earned her a third Coretta Scott King award, as well as the Michael L. Printz Award, given for excellence in young adult literature. In late 2003 she was the recipient of an extraordinary honor. She was named a MacArthur fellow, receiving a $500,000 grant known as the "genius" grant. The prize came from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, a private organization that awards grants to exceptionally talented people in a variety of creative fields.
