I just finished the game and so I'm going back to try to find all the balloons and any story pages I may have missed as well. I bought the balloon radar toy and am using it.
The first balloon I am having trouble with is in the beginning of the game. The radar is telling me it's on the left hand broken part of the double staircase with the hippo head between them. Now I can get over there but can't find the balloon. I'll keep going for now but if anyone knows what I'm talking about and can help, please post!
If this is dying, I don't think much of it - Lytton Strachey (1880-1932)
How do you get up there? That's the balloon I'm missing too.
You can jump on the hippo's snout from the right hand set of steps and then hop to the left balcony, even though it doesn't look like you should be able to. Although now it's been answered, it turns out you don't need to get up there at all.
