Siebert Award Winner - This is part biography of Tony Sarg, the puppeteer of Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. It is part history of the Macy's parade, and part history of how the parade balloon came into being. The artwork is wonderful and the story is engaging. This would be a good read aloud for 2nd - 5th graders and could be used for a non-fiction book report. I really liked this book!
