All of Graeme Base's books are absolutely stunning from the story to the illustrations. However, this book is his shinning accomplishment. The story is wonderful and only exceeded by the gorgeous illustrations. This book can be read cover to cover but then it is also fun to go back and solve on the hidden puzzles. ( )

I can actually remember the first time I set eyes upon this book. One of my classmates (the one who went on to win the Vogel, I think!) had brought it in to school to show it off, and everyone was incredibly excited by the fact that there was now a second book to obsess over as much as we'd obsessed over [b:Animalia|682751|Animalia|Graeme Base|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1328853111s/682751.jpg|2347064]. It was absolute heaven when I was finally able to borrow it out from the library and read it properly.

The eleventh hour is a story about an elephant who hosts a party for his own birthday. He creates many lavish dishes for his friends. Before the elephant and his friends eat the feast they play many birthday games. After the games, the elephant and his guests find that someone has eaten all of the birthday meal. Beautiful illustrations to enjoy as you read the story and the art also reveals who ate the birthday dinner.

This is a very whimsical children's book. The illustrations are spectacular and there's so much detail it takes a couple of times to read to really see everything. The stories cute and children under 9 I think will enjoy it very much.

Even though I love the art the illustrations are overwhelming especially when you realize that only searching through the art is how you find who had devoured the meal.

I never did find out who done it I had bought this as a gift for a nephew. I would probably search through it again if I had had the time. It definitely would be good to help kids as a visual exercise. ( )

My speech therapist use to make me read Graeme Base books aloud ad-nauseam. It’s only as an adult I have come to love each and every one. These are just so much more than a rhyming story. They are also a mystery. And each illustration hides a message. Some easy some not. Can you figure out who at the birthday feast. I’m not telling. ( )

A book is read, a story ends, a telling tale is told.
But who can say what mysteries a single page may hold?
A maze of codes and clues, a clock at every turn,
And only time will tell what other secrets you may learn . . .
