No elementary school library would be complete without a beautifully illustrated book by Graeme Base. And, The Eleventh Hour is a perfect choice! The illustrations are beautiful, the story in rhyme makes for a fantastic read aloud and you and your child will have the time of your life together revisiting each page to to find the hidden clues and solve the mystery of who ate the Birthday party feast. Pair that experience with an invitation to make your own cipher and create other secret messages to decode and it's no mystery this Bindle is a favorite!
