Ballons Over Broadway

I've just watch "Balloons Over Broadway", a book by Melissa Sweet. I'm impressed by Tony Sarg, the man who run the show. He makes marrionette, design a puppet show for Macy's window on Thanksgiving Day, and he design a parade for Macy's yearly carnival.

But I'm even more impressed by Melissa Sweet who make Tony's story into children's storybook. In a veeery very good way. Melissa know the importance of bringing those ideas, creativity, and magical things of what Tony do, to children .

One of the book's page. Showing how Tony make a mechanic system composing his show, and even sweing costume for the puppet. I really love the way Melissa compose this page, as if this is Tony's diary himself.
