by Sweet, Melissa Year Published: 2011
As a child, Tony Sarg loved working with things that moved, like marionettes. He used this passion to design incredible window displays and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. His invention, air‐filled rubber floats, part puppet and part balloon, are now known the world over, delighting children and adults alike. Masterful collage and found object illustrations make this a book to remember.
