Author: Natalie Babbitt; Foreword by Gregory Maguire
The classic novel about a young girl who stumbles upon a family's stunning secret
What if you could live forever?
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.
A brand-new introduction from Gregory Maguire, the author of Wicked, and additional bonus materials make this special edition of Natalie Babbitt's Tuck Everlasting a must-have for lovers of the book and a great way to introduce a new generation to a classic. This title has Common Core connections.
