Tuck everlasting is about how never dying is
a curse, friends and family.
An author and an illustrator
Natalie with her book
Natalie Babbitt was born on July 28, 1932
“Like all magnificent things, it's very simple
Everything's a wheel, turning and turning, never stopping. The frogs is part of it, and the bugs, and the fish, and the wood thrush, too. And people. But never the same ones. Always coming in new, always growing and changing, and always moving on. That's the way it's supposed to be. That's the way it is.

But dying's part of the wheel, right there next to being born. You can't pick out the pieces you like and leave the rest. Being part of the whole thing, that's the blessing
Life's got to be lived, no matter how long or short. You got to take what comes.”
For some, time passes slowly. An hour can seem like an eternity. For others, there was never enough. For Jesse Tuck, it didn't exist
Nothing ever seems interesting when it belongs to you - only when it doesn't.

wrote a lot of books!
The Search for Delicious
This book is another well
known book by Ms. Babbitt.
a great author
of great books
Gaylen, the King’s messenger, a skinny boy of twelve,
is off to poll the kingdom, traveling from town to
farmstead to town on his horse, Marrow. At first it
is merely a question of disagreement at the royal
castle over which food should stand for Delicious
in the new dictionary. But soon it seems that the
search for Delicious had better succeed if civil war
is to be avoided.
Gaylen’s quest leads him to the woldweller, a wise,
900-year-old creature who lives alone at the precise
center of the forest; to Canto, the minstrel who
sings him an old song about a mermaid child and
who gives him a peculiar good-luck charm; to
the underground domain of the dwarfs; and
finally to Ardis who might save the kingdom
of great illustrations
It makes me uncomfortable to know that my story Tuck Everlasting is required reading in some classrooms. My sympathies are entirely with the children, for many will react to Tuck as I well might have-with a shudder. Many will find its language too ‘fancy,’ its pace too slow, its topic unsettling, the behavior of its hero incomprehensible.”--Natalie Babbitt in "Saying What You Think." The Quarterly Journal of the Library of Congress*

a lot about
Natalie Babbitt was born Natalie Zane Moore on July 28, 1932, in Dayton, Ohio. She attended Laurel School for Girls, and then Smith College. She has 3 children and is married to Samuel Fisher Babbitt. She is a grandmother of 3 and lives in Rhode Island.
She is also a board member of the National Children's Book and Literacy Alliance a national not-for-profit that actively advocates for literacy, literature, and libraries.
When did you realize that you wanted to be a writer?
After all, you can’t make pictures for stories unless you have .
stories to make pictures for.
I didn’t even think about writing.
My husband wrote the story for the first book.
But then he didn’t want to do it anymore, so I had to start
writing my own stories.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
When I was a preschooler, I wanted to be a pirate, and then when I started school, I wanted to be a librarian. But in the fourth grade, I got my copy of Alice in Wonderland / Alice Through the Looking-Glass and decided once and for all that I wanted to be an illustrator of stories for children.
And so she was!!

We were very surprised at how many books she wrote!!
We really think we learned a lot!!
WE where surprised that she was a illustrator first and she only wrote because she had nothing to illustrate.
