BALLOONS OVER BROADWAY The True Story of the Puppeteer of Macy's Parade

by | Read by John McDonough

Children Ages 4-6 • 15 min. • Unabridged • © 2011

John McDonough’s larger-than-life narration conveys a sense of wonder at the story of Tony Sarg, the father of American puppetry. McDonough’s full-bodied voice and dramatic pacing infuse excitement into this biography of the innovative and determined inventor who created the first giant puppets. Long, drawn-out words express the expanse and magnificence of the giant balloon puppets that now grace the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade. This positive and engrossing story also features a section of author notes, which McDonough narrates with equal enthusiasm as he recounts Sarg’s commitment to art and to children around the world.
