About the Author
Artist and writer Natalie Babbitt (1932-2016) is the award-winning author of the modern classic Tuck Everlasting, The Eyes of the Amaryllis, Kneeknock Rise and many other brilliantly original books for young people. She began her career in 1966 as the illustrator of The Forty-ninth Magician, written by her husband. When her husband became a college president and no longer had time to collaborate, Babbitt tried her hand at writing. Her first novel, The Search for Delicious, established her gift for writing magical tales with profound meaning. Kneeknock Rise earned her a Newbery Honor Medal, and in 2002, Tuck Everlasting was adapted into a major motion picture. Natalie Babbitt lived in Hamden, CT.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book has many adventurous stories in which the Devil appears doing evil deeds. It is about the Devil and what happens to the numerous characters on Earth, in Heaven, or in Hell. One favorite story was 'Ashes,' because of the way a pig gets attached to the main character. The stories have good morals, and they were interesting, funny, and hard to stop reading.
