Looking For Atlantis, by Colin Thompson. Alfred A. Knopf, 1993. Unnumbered pages, large glossy paper with beautifully intricate full-color artwork filling every page. "This richly layered picture book about the power of the imagination and the transcendental quality of love is... a visually stunning work of art." $5

The Eleventh Hour: A Curious Mystery, by Graeme Base. Harry N. Abrams, Inc., Publishers, 1988. 32 pages illustrated in full color, hardback with slipcover. From the author of the best-seller Animalia. Graeme Base has filled the pages with rhyming text and detailed illustrations, each one containing cryptic visual clues and hidden messages that will keep readers searching for hours for the answer to the mystery. And while this copy is in pristine condition, the seal on the final pages containing the answers has been broken - the purchaser may want to reseal the pages before giving this as a gift. $5
