1 Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt Welcome Living Forever Mae Tuck Jesse Miles The Man in the Yellow Suit Winnie Conclusion

2 Living Forever Welcome Living Forever Mae Tuck Jesse Miles The Man in the Yellow Suit Winnie Conclusion In the book Tuck Everlasting, 11-year-old Winnie meets the four members of the Tuck family. She learns that after drinking from a magic spring decades before, they became immortal. Jesse, who loves the never-ending adventure that is his life, wants nothing more than for Winnie to drink the magic water when she turns 17, and become his partner in eternity. The rest of the family has very different views from Jesse. Explore each characters perspective to help you draw your own conclusion.

3 Mae Welcome Living Forever Mae Tuck Jesse Miles The Man in the Yellow Suit Winnie Conclusion Well, theres no use complaining about something you cant change. I dont know if I would have drunk the water if I knew what it did, but theres nothing I can do about it now. Just have to make the best out of what life gives you and find things that make you happy.

4 Tuck Welcome Living Forever Mae Tuck Jesse Miles The Man in the Yellow Suit Winnie Conclusion Immortality is unnatural. You cant have living without dying. We Tucks only get to do the living. We dont get to grow and change – were just stuck. That aint no way to live.

5 Jesse Welcome Living Forever Mae Tuck Jesse Miles The Man in the Yellow Suit Winnie Conclusion Immortality is an adventure. I get to travel the world, meeting interesting people and experiencing all life has to offer. I can take risks without a care in the world. So I dont have a wife – big deal! If Winnie decides to drink the water, shell be my partner forever. Just imagine the possibilities!

6 Miles Welcome Living Forever Mae Tuck Jesse Miles The Man in the Yellow Suit Winnie Conclusion Immortality is a curse. I lost the woman I love and my darling children before I even knew what had happened. Now Im destined to live my life alone, forever. Any person who would consider drinking that water, knowing its secret, would have to be mad.

7 The Man in the Yellow Suit Welcome Living Forever Mae Tuck Jesse Miles The Man in the Yellow Suit Winnie Conclusion What an amazing business opportunity! Think of the money I could make by offering the water to the right people. Now that I have the rights to the wood where the spring is, all I have to do is show my customers the benefits of immortality. I just have to convince the Tucks to be my advertisement. If they refuse to help me, I still have the child. Once she drinks the water, shell be the perfect specimen!

8 Winnie Welcome Living Forever Mae Tuck Jesse Miles The Man in the Yellow Suit Winnie Conclusion Im just so confused. I dont know who to believe. The Tucks are my friends and I love them, but their story is so strange. The things Tuck and Miles say scare me. But Jesse makes everything sound so exciting. We could see and do so many things – we could make a difference. But what if I had to see my parents and grandmother and everyone else I know die? I dont know if its worth it…

9 Conclusion Welcome Living Forever Mae Tuck Jesse Miles The Man in the Yellow Suit Winnie Conclusion How do you feel about the idea of living forever? What advice would you give Winnie? Should she drink the water when she turns 17 so that she can live with Jesse forever, or should she remain part of the wheel of life? Write a friendly letter to Winnie persuading her to make the choice you think is right.
