Michael Paraskevas

“He was gallant, he was regal,
Did you see that eagle,
Eyes, canary diamonds in the sun?”
Illustrations by Michael Paraskevas from his 
children’s book On the Day the Tall Ships Sailed.
 The book is based on a patriotic song 
written by Betty Paraskevas.

An excerpt from Publisher’s Weekly:
“On the Fourth of July, as stately tall ships journey up 
the Hudson River past modern Manhattan, a lone eagle 
joins their procession, a symbol come to life.”
