The duck and the darklings by Glenda Millard

The duck and the darklings by Glenda MillardThis book is amazing! A journey of words and images beautifully portrayed.  “ ‘What good is there in telling tales of lost and longed-for things?’ The old man asked. ‘When you think about the long-ago, I see starlight in your eyes, says Peterboy. ‘Please, Grandpapa, fill our darkness with light, warm our wintery hearts with your stories.’ ” I played these words over and over in my mind as I read the story of a world destroyed and I ached because it might one day be true and nature’s beauty will only exist in the memories of the oldest survivors.
