Blessed with--or doomed to--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 of a blessing than it might seem. Complications arise when Winnie is followed by a stranger who wants to market the spring water for a fortune. A brand-new introduction from Gregory Maguire, the author of "Wicked," and additional bonus materials make this special edition a must-have for lovers of the book and a great way to introduce a new generation to a classic.
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 readers. 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.
