On certain nights, when the hands on the big old clock in the animal hospital approach midnight, something changes. As the clock strikes out the twelve chimes, each and every animal in every cage, in every ward, is ready. When the last chime echoes through the dark hallways, all the animals sit up. The building seems to hold its breath. Then all the locks on the cages click and the doors swing open. Without a sound, the animals gather outside for the meeting of The Midnight Club. None of them knows who will be tonight’s storyteller. They only know that the stories they share are important. They need to be told every night, at midnight, when the big clock in the meeting room strikes twelve. At the start and end of each story there is a ritual that signals the rights of animals to hope for and receive the basic things needed for a safe and contented life.
