Is eternal life a blessing or a curse? That is what young Winnie Foster must decide when she discovers a spring on her family's property whose waters grant immortality. Members of the Tuck family, having drunk from the spring, tell Winnie of their experiences watching life go by and never growing older.
But then Winnie must decide whether or not to keep the Tucks secret and whether or not to join them on their never-ending journey.

About the Author

A gifted artist and writer, Natalie Babbitt is the award-winning author of the modern classic "Tuck Everlasting", "The Eyes of the Amaryllis", "Kneeknock Rise" and many other brilliantly original books for young people. She began her career in 1966 as the illustrator of "The Forty-ninth Magician", a collaboration with her husband. When her husband became a college president and no longer had time to collaborate, Babbitt tried her hand at writing. Her first novel, "The Search for Delicious", established her gift for writing magical tales with profound meaning. "Kneeknock Rise" earned her a Newbery Honor Medal, and in 2002, "Tuck Everlasting" was adapted into a major motion picture. Natalie Babbitt lives in Providence, Rhode Island, and is a grandmother of three.

Peter Thomas and his wife Anne are the authors of two activity books for children and parents. They have three children of their own and live in the Netherlands.
