After seeing the movie, "Tuck Everlasting," I immediately wanted to read the book Natalie Babbitt does an excellent job of creating a marvelous story that draws the reader in on the first page and keeps providing simple yet beautifully descriptive paragraphs to pull the reader eagerly from page to page.

The main character, a young lady of only eleven a few years older in the movie living a sheltered, privileged, and tightly controlled life behind an iron fence, yearns to experience the world outside her gate. The woods next door belong to her father, so what harm could come to her there? Winifred makes a marvelous discovery and encounters an unusual family that provides her more affection and freedom in a short time than she previously experienced in her entire life.

Her family fears she has been kidnapped, and encouraged by a mystery man, who wants possession of the woods in exchange for leading them to their daughter, discover Winifred and the family sheltering her.

The mystery of what is hidden in the woods, and the unusual family's predicament supply the tension and the crux of the story. The reader is forced to consider one of the biggest of life's questions. As the old saying goes: "Be careful what you wish for; you just might get it. What decision will Winnie make? What are the consequences of what seems a magical solution that many seek through the ages? Why is the mystery man so determined to gain possession of the woods and why does the Tuck family risk exposure to assure he does not?

This is a charming, delightful story that provokes deep consideration. I recommend "Tuck Everlasting" to readers looking for beautiful writing and a story that transcends the page to probe deep into the reader's psyche.

I look forward to reading more of Natalie Babbitt's work. I first remember this book when my children were young and my wife and I read stories to them out loud. It would really catch my imagination. So when I ran across it again, I thought I should read it to see if I thought as much of it being older and maybe wiser. I like it again! The atmosphere, the feeling of loneliness and the question of living forever still makes me think. It reminds me of something my elderly mother said that went something like this: "It is a good thing that we get old so that young people can have a chance to be experts.

If not for getting old and dying they would never be able to do more and know more" and would languish in mediocrity I might add. Tuck Everlasting is the fifth book that my daughter and I have read this summer. It is a winning and thoroughly engaging story that has left both of us talking and thinking.

The main thought of the book is, "would you want to live forever? We follow the main character, Winnie, as she tackles this complicated decision. At the beginning of the story Winnie is a very sheltered and safe little girl 10 years old.

She plays in her carefully groomed front yard, watching things around her including a thirsty toad. Her world is safe, slow, and somnolent - seemingly napping in the hot, dry sun. The catalyst for change occurs when a man in a yellow suit no, not hat, you Curious George fans. He is asking questions and seems unduly curious when they the man and Winnie hear a strange, almost elfin tune. The man is excited. The girl Winnie is motivated to make a surge forward.

She runs into the forest where she discovers a young man Jesse Tuck drinking from a fountain hidden under stones at the base of a tree. I know, it sounds like a fairy tale. The story does come across as magical. The question is do you believe? Does Winnie believe?
