A Midnight Song by C.L. Peck is an engaging children's fable that introduces young readers to travel, African culture, friendship, marine life, and legends. This plot is filled with exciting adventure, African cultural dances, music, and stories, as well as strong emotions of excitement, fear, self doubt, happiness, and sadness.

C.L. Peck has taken the great tradition of reading a bedtime story to a whole new level with A Midnight Song. The author tells a very charming tale of a young boy traveling with his parents around the world. The family stops in an African town and the young boy meets a young African girl and her uncle. The boy could never imagine how much he would learn and become a part of the African culture and life in just one night visit. The author opens up the imagination to all who read this tale. The story is written with such elegance, making it easily understood and read, and it is a page turner from cover to cover. The illustrations correlate very well with the text, as their colorful, very detailed appearance is excellent and child-friendly.

A Midnight Song by C.L. Peck is a children's book that will be passed on through generations of mothers and fathers reading bedtime stories to their children. The author's plot allows for readers, young and old alike, to imagine experiencing a whole different lifestyle outside of their own. Very well done.
