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 take her home and explain why living forever at one age is less a blessing that it might seem. Complications arise when Winnie is followed by a stranger who wants to market the spring water for a fortune.

    "Rarely does one find a book with such prose. Flawless in both style and structure, it is rich in imagery and punctuated with light fillips of humor."--"The Horn Book Magazine""Beautiful and descriptive language is the strength of Babbitt's fantasy about Winnie and her encounter with the Tuck family, who cause her--and readers--to ponder an important question: What would it be like to live forever?"--"Booklist""Probably the best work of our best children's novelist."--"Harper's""A fearsome and beautifully written book that can't be put down or forgotten."--"The New Yorker""Exciting and excellently written."--"The New York Times Book Review""Natalie Babbitt's great skill is spinning fantasy with the lilt and sense of timeless wisdom of the old fairy tales. . . . It lingers on, haunting your waking hours, making you ponder."--"The Boston Globe""With its serious intentions and light touch the story is, like the Tucks, timeless."--"Chicago Sun-Times""This book is as shapely, crisp, sweet, and tangy as a summer-ripe pear."--"Entertainment Weekly"
