Summary

Everyone's a New Yorker on Thanksgiving Day, when young and old 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?" Tony Sarg -- puppeteer, illustrator and legendary prankster who once declared, "I never worked a day in my life." In brilliant collage illustrations, award-winning artist Melissa Sweet tells the story of this puppeteer, capturing his genius, his dedication, his zest for play, and his long-lasting gift to America -- the inspired helium balloons that would become the trademark of Macy's Parade.
