Editorial Reviews

"Rarely does one find a book with such prose. Flawless in both style and structure, it is rich in imagery and punctuated with light fillips of humor." -The Horn Book Magazine"Beautiful and descriptive language is the strength of Babbitt's fantasy about Winnie and her encounter with the Tuck family, who cause her--and readers--to ponder an important question: What would it be like to live forever?" -Booklist"Probably the best work of our best children's novelist." -Harper's"A fearsome and beautifully written book that can't be put down or forgotten." -The New Yorker"Exciting and excellently written." -The New York Times Book Review"Natalie Babbitt's great skill is spinning fantasy with the lilt and sense of timeless wisdom of the old fairy tales. . . . It lingers on, haunting your waking hours, making you ponder." -The Boston Globe"With its serious intentions and light touch the story is, like the Tucks, timeless." -Chicago Sun-Times"This book is as shapely, crisp, sweet, and tangy as a summer-ripe pear." -Entertainment Weekly
