Non-human fantasy from before 2004

I read this book in 2004 and I remember it looking old even then, possibly published in the 90's.

It's a fantasy with no human characters. I think the main character was a little blue creature with big eyes, possibly with a name starting with a B (my mind keeps telling me it's Bog or similar but I've had no luck using it in my searching).


He and his kind live in the low light but lighter part of the forest which is closest too the light source of the world, and are peaceful, fragile types of creatures. Then the light that comes from across the desert area starts to dim gradually, It starts off with the darkness monsters encrouching more and more into the lighter territory. Naturally the main character goes to find out why. He must cross the desert which gets very hot and bright. Meanwhile back in the forest with the light dimming it's gradually getting darker, allowing the terrible and evil monsters that live in the darkess to spread furhter into the lighter part of the forest and prey on the blue creatures. 


I've had quite a bit of trouble searching for it as it's such a obscure fantasy story involving no human characters but I remember I really liked it. The cover had the main character (may have had pointy and/or fluffy ears) with the darkness monsters looming over or behind and they are in a forest I think. If only there was a search engine that you could plug your brain into and search by the image in your head..
