Herbert Rowbarge has an identical twin who lives ninety miles away, but he doesn't know he exists. All he does know is that he gets a weird feeling when he looks into mirrors or watches his twin daughters. The only thing that makes him happy is the amusement park that he has created: It was the dream of his childhood, and it is complete with a merry-go-round with many pairs of beasts. Told from the points of view of Herbert and of his daughters, this family story explores what it means to be a self-made man to the exclusion of all others and the relationship between twins, whether you know you are one or not.

Author: Natalie Babbitt Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 18/02/2015

Doomed to, or blessed with, eternal life after drinking from a magic spring, the Tuck family wanders about trying to live as inconspicuously and comfortably as they can. When ten-year-old Winnie Foster stumbles on their secret, the Tucks take her home and explain why living forever at one age is less of a blessing than it might seem. Then complications arise when Winnie is followed by a stranger who wants to market the spring water for a fortune. A brand-new foreword from Gregory Maguire, the author of Wicked, and additional bonus materials make this special edition a must-have for lovers of the book and a great way to introduce a new generation to a classic.
