Praise For Tuck Everlasting, 25th Anniversary Edition

"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 author manipulates her plot deftly, dealing with six main characters brought together because of a spring whose waters can bestow everlasting life...Underlying the drama is the dilemma of the age-old desire for perpetual youth."-The Horn Book
