Creema di Leema

The world of Creema di Leema:

“It was about an hour before dark when we made our next move. We were both sorry to go. The Esplanada was just starting to  liven up for the night. Crowds of happy people were drifting about, offering one another swigs of Creema di Leema, and the coloured lights were coming on. They looked particularly good, because the sky was yellow, with white stars pricking in, and the rows of red and green and blue lights swung against the yellow. We had a last nip of Creema when the call came and drifted up the Esplanada. As I said, I kept tight hold of Helen’s sleeve. We didn’t know quite where the Boundary was here, and I was taking no chances.”-Jamie,  The Homeward Bounders, by Diana Wynne Jones

The Homeward Bounders by Diana Wynne Jones has always been one of my favorite fantasy books. It’s very sad, and yet there is no real death.Scan0244
