Presents a tribute to the creator of the giant balloons that fill the sky during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, tracing the work of artist Tony Sarg, whose innovative “upside-down puppet” creations have become the parade’s trademark.
This fantastically buoyant book is sure to delight readers of all ages. I love the playful and whimsical illustrations and the way the text is integrated into some of the illustrations. The book is based on the true story of the evolution of Anthony Sang’s wonderful puppets into the enormous balloons that are the trademark of Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The problem-solving theme of the book appeals to me, as does the teamwork and reliance on others with expertise to help solve the problems.
