'Intense and powerful, exciting and poignant, Tuck Everlasting will last forever - in the reader's imagination.' Amazon.com; 'Someone ought to start spreading the word that Natalie Babbitt is not only a children's writer... the style is so fine and subtle that grownups too will take real pleasure. 'Tuck Everlasting' is one of the best books ever written - for any age.' Anne Tyler, New York Times; "This refreshing and original story throws up all sorts of moral dilemmas, not least the question of whether one would like to live forever. Children in Year 4 and above will find much to ponder here." Times Educational Supplement; "Babbitt's economy of style is such that she can use a single gesture or detail to convey great swathes of meaning; She understands perfectly the sense of powerlessness felt by children and her message is whether your name is Harry Potter, Frodo Baggins or Winnie Foster, young people with courage and a sense of rightness can 'make a difference'." Herald (Glasgow); 'Not since Swift invented the Struldbrugs has the quandary of everlasting life been so thoughtfully explored...A poignant story.' Mary Hoffman, Armadillo
