Picture Book Illustrator & Author

I Dream of Trains

by Angela Johnson | illustrated by Loren Long

Simon & Schuster  2003 

The poignant words of two-time Coretta Scott King Award-winning author Angela Johnson and striking images from fine artist Loren Long join forces in this heartbreaking yet uplifting picture book about a boy, his love for trains, and his adulation of one legendary engineer.

It's the story of a hero lost and a hero discovered, of a dream crushed then reawakened, but mostly it is a story of the force that sustains the human spirit — hope.

Winner of the 2003 Golden Kite Award for picture book illustration, presented by the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.
