Outline ReviewImagine 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 Everlastingwill last forever--in the reader's imagination. An ALA Notable Book. (Ages 9 to 12) --Emilie Coulter


Product Description
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 starnger who wants to market the spring water for a fortune

Tuck Everlasting  Jun 15, 2008
One hot summer day in August, 10-year-old Winnie Foster sits on the front porch and thinks about running away. She goes into the woods, but she finds a boy named Jesse Tuck sitting underneath the biggest tree in the wood. After that, she finds herself on one of the greatest adventures ever. She meets the rest of the Tucks, who have had a twist of fate and ended up permanently immortal. Winnie learns lots of things about the value of life from the Tucks, and I was very satisfied with how the book ended.

Natalie Babbit has a magical way of turning a poetic novel into something that a sixth grader can enjoy again and again. I loved Tuck Everlasing, so maybe I will read some more of Natalie Babbit's work, such as Kneeknock Rise. If you enjoyed Tuck Everlasting as much as I did, maybe you should, too!

A review of Tuck Everlasting  Jun 15, 2008
The first week of August has brought a terrible heat to the little village called Treegap. 10-year-old Winnie Foster dreams of running away from home and into the woods her family owns. When she finally dares to go, Winnie discovers the Tuck family and the secret they've sworn to protect: a hidden fountain that bestows eternal life. She is swept up in the Tucks' lives and must decide if she will help them keep their secret from a stranger who threatens their way of life.

Natalie Babbitt's classic story forces readers to reexamine their own beliefs about life and death. Winnie Foster is forced to make some big decisions and, at times, she thinks and acts like someone older than ten. However, this fluctuation in character voice isn't as disconcerting as it would be in other texts; the story revolves around characters that are older than they appear. Tuck, the father of the family, speaks with a wisdom and sorrow that will stick with readers after they've finished the story. Babbitt uses a great deal of symbolism in Tuck Everlasting and the book can be read on multiple levels.
 
One of the best books I have ever read  Jun 13, 2008
Yes!! Tuck Everlasting truly is one of the best books I have ever read. Natalie Babbit makes her writing poetic and yet exciting at the same time. I am the same age as Winnie Foster and I kind of know what it feels like to be fed up with being cooped up in a house. I absolutely loved the part where Winnie walks into the Tuck's home and describes it as, "...the gentle eddies of dust, the silver cobwebs, the mouse who lived-and welcome to him!-in a table drawer."
Now that I have read Tuck Everlasting, I think I will read Kneeknock Rise whick is also by Natalie Babbit. If you liked Tuck Everlasting; maybe you should too!

A Must Read  Jun 6, 2008
I didn't read this book until I took Young Adult Lit in college. By that time I had children who were in the age range for which this book is recommended. I was fascinated with this book and have read it more than once. I raved about this book and had my kids read it and recommended it to every kid in the library. I think adults may appreaciate it more than children will although my daughter loved it even when she was young. It's a wonderful fantasy story but also very thought provoking. Young people can read it just for the fun story but it's one that will stick with them and they will remember it later. It makes adults think twice about each day in their life. The movie was okay but it didn't do the book justice. I totally recommend reading the book. (I kept looking for the frog in the movie.)
