Description

Everyone’s a New Yorker on Thanksgiving Day, when old and young rise early to see what giant new balloons will fill the skies for Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Who first invented these “upside-down puppets”? Meet Tony Sarg, puppeteer extraordinaire! In brilliant collage illustrations, Caldecott Honor artist Melissa Sweet tells the story of the puppeteer Tony Sarg, capturing his genius, his dedication, his zest for play, and his long-lasting gift to The usa—the inspired helium balloons that would turn out to be the trademark of Macy’s Parade. Winner of the 2012 Robert F. Sibert Medal and the NCTE Orbis Pictus Award.


Sketches from the Author
(Click on Images to Enlarge)


On occasion I have to play with pictures to find the words, so I’m going to make a collage to get warmed up.

My writing looks like lists and doodles until the very end when I write it out on the computer.

An early sketch in Tony Sarg’s studio where they puppeteers are figuring out how to make the inflatable animals.

This used to be the very best place to have a spread that needed to be turned, identical to the “upside down marionettes” rising up.

In a nonfiction even the smallest detail must be accurate and I found this wonderful reference for a 1920’s New York City bus stop sign that I used in Balloons Over Broadway.
