From the Horse's Mouth

Natalie Babbitt tells us a little about herself on her Scholastic author's page. We're not surprised to hear she's been obsessed with fairy tales her whole life.

And in real life, of course.

Movie or TV Productions

Tuck Everlasting (1981)

This one's not super glamorous, but it definitely captures the feel of the book. And for that, we give it two Shmoops up.

Tuck Everlasting (2002)

In this 21st-century take, Winnie is fifteen years old. And that little crush she has? Well, get ready for some romance.

Articles and Interviews

Would You Want to Live Forever?

One scientist says the possibility for human immortality might be achieved in our lifetimes. Sure makes you think.

Interview with the Author

On the Scholastic site, Natalie Babbitt answers questions posted by young readers. What would you ask?

Babbitt on Literature

Why should you care? Just ask our author, who spoke about that at a 1989 lecture at the New York Public Library. The title? "The Purpose of Literature—and Who Cares?"


Clips of Immortality

After watching all these clips, we kind of wish we lived in Treegap. Or Hollywood.

What's Working on a Movie Like?

Actor Jonathan Jackson, who plays Jesse Tuck in the 2002 film adaptation, shares his video journal from the set of the movie. Talk about an inside peek.


Tuck Out Loud

Shmoop likes to read with our eyes closed.


Winnie's Got Style

We kind of want Winnie's outfit. (Without the toad, of course.)

Classic Cover

If you squint a ton, you might be able to make out Winnie out there on the boat.

Puppy Love

We bet our labradoodle would love this pup (hanging out with Natalie Babbitt).
