Description - Duck and the Darklings by Glenda Millard

In the sorry land of Dark, Peterboy searches for something wonderful to make the light shine again in his Grandpapa's eyes. Instead he finds a wounded duck, and Grandpapa mends her from top to tail; quack, waddle and wing. In return she cosies his toes. But ducks live for the feel of wind in their wings, and the day comes when Peterboy must make a fine and fitting fare-thee-well for Idaduck. The children wear their candle-hats to light her way. Grandpapa plays oompapas on his curly brass tootle, and the Darklings' farewell goes all night, until the sun rises on the most wonderful day.
