9780747564171: Tuck Everlasting

Doomed to - or blessed with - eternal life after drinking from a magic spring, the Tuck family wanders about trying to live as inconspicuously and comfortably as they can. When ten year old Winnie Foster stumbles on their secret, the Tucks kidnap her and explain why living forever at one age is less than a blessing that it might seem. 'Intense and powerful, exciting and poignant, Tuck Everlasting will last forever - in the reader's imagination.' Amazon.com 'Someone ought to start spreading the word that Natalie Babbitt is not only a children's writer the style is so fine and subtle that grownups too will take real pleasure. 'Tuck Everlasting' is one of the best books ever written - for any age.' Anne Tyler, New York Times Featured in Elle Hot 100 "This refreshing and original story throws up all sorts of moral dilemmas, not least the question of whether one would like to live forever. Children in Year 4 and above will find much to ponder here." Times Educational Supplement "Babbitt's economy of style is such that she can use a single gesture or detail to convey great swathes of meaning She understands perfectly the sense of powerlessness felt by children and her message is whether your name is Harry Potter, Frodo Baggins or Winnie Foster, young people with courage and a sense of rightness can 'make a difference'. " Herald (Glasgow) 'A welcome reissue of a book previously published in 1977. Long regarded as an American masterpiece, Natalie Babbitt's novel deals with a weighty subject - everlasting life, no less - with a lightness of touch and a simplicity that never descends to the pedantic or the condescending. Sounds fanciful, but is told with all the cool, sharp, clear-eyed 'realism' that represents the best of American writing.

Review:

Imagine coming upon a fountain of youth in a forest. To live forever--isn't that everyone's ideal? For the Tuck family, eternal life is a reality, but their reaction to their fate is surprising. Award winner Natalie Babbitt (Knee-Knock Rise, The Search for Delicious) outdoes herself in this sensitive, moving adventure in which 10-year-old Winnie Foster is kidnapped, finds herself helping a murderer out of jail, and is eventually offered the ultimate gift--but doesn't know whether to accept it. Babbitt asks profound questions about the meaning of life and death, and leaves the reader with a greater appreciation for the perfect cycle of nature. Intense and powerful, exciting and poignant, Tuck Everlasting will last forever--in the reader's imagination. An ALA Notable Book. (Ages 9 to 12) --Emilie Coulter

Read by Peter Thomas
3 hours 25 minutes, 2 cassettes

When ten-year-old Winnie Foster stumbles upon the Tuck family's disturbing secret, she is forced to come to terms with her conflicting emotions. She feels drawn to the loving, gentle and rather eccentric Tucks, but what they tell her is too incredible to be believed. Doomed to?or blessed with?eternal life after drinking from a magic spring, the Tuck family tries to make Winnie understand that the terrible magic of the forest spring can never be revealed. The consequences to the world could prove to be disastrous!

But then an unexpected complication arises when Winnie is followed by a stranger who wants to sell the spring water and make a fortune.
