A Caldecott Honor Medal recipient and the illustrator of nearly 100 children's books, Melissa Sweet delivers the charming story of Tony Sarg, the man known as ''America's Puppet Master.'' With delightful, rhyming prose, Sweet takes listeners back to the 1920s to meet the designer who created the first helium-filled balloons for Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Celebrating the fun and playfulness of Sarg's popular creations, Balloons Over Broadway brims with all the joy of one of America's most beloved traditions.
