It's 1924 and the holidays are approaching. Milly lives in NYC with her Polish family and frolics daily in holiday displays at the Macy's store under the watchful eye of Mr. Macy. But Milly's family misses their homeland and traditions. In an effort to cheer people up, Milly convinces Mr. Macy to combine old country traditions with new American heritage in a celebration for all to enjoy. Everyone agrees that the resulting parade will become a wonderful new tradition. This heartwarming story beautifully captures the creation of a uniquely American event.

Editorial Reviews

Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade has been brightening the lives of New Yorkers since 1924. Milly and Macy's Parade spins a sweet fictional tale about the parade's origins. According to this engaging picture book, a Polish immigrant's daughter suggests the idea of the Turkey Day event to Mr. Macy, who obliges in a big way. Artist Brett Helquist, of Series of Unfortunate Events fame, enlivens the story with colorful pictures of happy Gothamites.

Brett Helquist was born in Ganado, Arizona, and grew up in Orem, Utah. He entered Brigham Young University as an engineering major, but soon realized this was not the right choice for him. Having decided to take time off from college, he headed to Taiwan where he stumbled into a job illustrating English textbooks, which he enjoyed. There, a friend introduced him to an illustration student, also from Brigham Young University. This introduction inspired Brett to eventually switch majors. After spending a year in Taiwan, he went back to BYU and transferred to the illustration department. In 1993 he received a fine arts degree in illustration.
