Summary
Grandpapa'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! This 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
Summary
Peterboy, who lives with his grandfather in the underground land of Dark, wants to bring light to the old man's eyes, so when he finds an injured duck while scavenging in the ruins above, he brings it back and they nurse it back to health
