• Tuck Everlasting/Natalie Babbit -

The Toad, like the tucks, had been removed from the wheel of time. He is metamorphosis frozen, and unchanging.

The music box: the one object that changes almost as little as they do, it recalls the time before the spring ruined their lives. As such it is a bittersweet memento. Also, it is the bait that gets her into the forest where she would not have otherwise gone, without it's stimulating her curiosity.

other symbols...
Her gravestone: The symbol that she chose life over immortality.

The forest beyond her fenced yard: Freedom and the mystery of the unknown.
