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.

    I am a teacher who purchased this book for students in grade 5/6. So far the feedback from the students is great.

    "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
