When Eliza Jane Trotsky wakes up on her birthday, the first thing she finds is a piece of pink cake which she takes outside to enjoy. Along comes a big blue jalopy full of things to trade for Eliza's birthday cake, but what will she choose? This sort of poetic little rhyming book is all about imagination and love.


Ruth Allen draws and paints and lives with a little white hound in a little green house in Athens, Georgia. She is a self taught artist. Her work has been exhibited and collected from the heart of the southern US to the shores of Lake Michigan, Japan, Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, London, and Los Angeles.
