    I'm coming! Most of the time it's too hot to be Tuck everlasting book in the sun, and when Winnie does actually venture outside, she never goes beyond the fence of the yard. The story itself on a bigger picture is a contrast between living life with all the events that have to accompany it--including death--and running from those necessary events but not being able to live life. In any case, the wood, being on top-except, of course, for its roots-was owned bud and bough by the Fosters in the touch-me-not cottage, and if they never went there, if they never wandered in among the trees, well, that was their affair. The bullfrog foreshadows trouble ahead. This theme comes up with Miles too.

    The Tucks explain to Winnie that the spring grants eternal life to anyone who drinks its water, effects which they discovered by accident. But she had never been curious about it. Tuck twitched and the smile vanished. Mae has been trying to tend to Winnie, who's still deeply upset at having been kidnapped and brought here by force; she still feels like a prisoner even though Mae tries to assure her that she's not.

    Soon after, his brother Miles and his mother Mae take her away with them. He says the family is named Tuck, and they're long-lost Tuck everlasting book, as he claims. Did she ever try to find the Tucks? Why does Winnie talk to the toad? She is the only child of the Fosters who live in the "touch me not" cottage at the edge of the small woods. Miles, however, proves he's exceptionally sharp at counting the position of each card in the deck, particularly the aces.
