I loved this. It never veered into cliché, although it could have. The ending rang true. The imagery was magical, just wonderful.

Deep children's book. To be immortal, to not change, is to not live, to be like a rock by the side of the road.

Winnie Foster, the ten-year-old protagonist of the story, contemplates eternity when she befriends the unique Tuck family. It's a short read, but Babbit sure packs a lot into it (mostly concerning one of Life's Big Questions: Would you want to live forever?). Beautifully written, with great fodder for future English majors (particularly the life-as-wheel motif).

And, despite all I've said about disliking audio books, this one was excellent. I got so into it that I took the CD inside with me when I got home so I could keep listening, even though I specifically got the audio book to keep me entertained during my commute.… (mere)

I had to read this book way back in the 6th grade or so. I don't remember liking it or loving it; I don't usually enjoy forced reads. I remember feeling a little sad for the characters and really happy for the toad. I'm sure that it's a good read, perhaps I should pick it up again.
