Click for availability and more information Tuck Everlasting, by Natalie Babbitt

Beautifully written by Natalie Babbitt in the 1970's, this truly is a wondrous adventure classic. Set in the late 1800's, precocious ten-year-old Winnie Foster runs away in her family's wood and stumbles upon the Tuck family who may have truly been given eternal life after drinking from a magic spring eighty years earlier. The Tucks try to explain to Winnie just what eternal life means to each of them, and how it is a secret never to be revealed. But the secret may be public already, and Winnie will be faced with the choices of aiding the Tucks and joining them in their fate. Recommended for ages 9-12. Great for both parents and children to read and discuss.
