Praise for All Aboard!
“An engaging biography of the African-American inventor…. The narrative includes fictionalized dialogue and clear explanations about how the machinery works and concludes with an inspiring message…. Expressive watercolors, some full page and some full spread, capture the time period, allowing readers to imagine what life was like in this era, and add energy and touches of humor.” – School Library Journal and Black History Month 2011: SLJ‘s Picks
“… The facts are well supported by the colourful pictures. McCoy’s life is an inspiration to young people as it tells of his dream and passion for becoming an engineer… an excellent read aloud. These bold illustrations are full of action showing trains and people in motion and likely to keep young readers’ interest. Highly recommended.” – Resource Links
