DescriptionGrandpapa's eyes shine when he remembers the beauty of the world, long-ago.
Peterboy wants to find something wonderful to bring the light to Grandpapa's eyes and keep it there.
What he finds is a duck, wounded and broken, and Grandpapa mends her from top to tail; quack, waddle and wing!
The Duck and the Darklings is a triumphant story, for children and adults, about the coming of hope in dark days, the warmth of friendship and the splendour of a new dawn.
