Tuck Everlasting Chapter 16

By Natalie Babbitt

Chapter 16

  • The constable and Yellow Suit Guy head off to pick up Winnie. The constable tries to gets some dish from Yellow Suit Guy, but Yellow Suit Guy says as little as he can. Still, the constable manages to learn that the Fosters have sold their land to Yellow Suit Guy.
  • This guy continues to chit-chat on and on—about how there's a new jail, and how long the legal process will take, and how most of the hardcore criminals end up in Charleyville. It all seems kind of irrelevant.
  • Finally, Yellow Suit Guy can't take it anymore. He tells the constable which path to follow and says he'll go on ahead. The constable agrees, and Yellow Suit Guy takes off. He'll definitely get there first.
