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 lives in a little green house with a little white hound in a small town in the southern United States. Her art is informed by the birds, flowers, animals, people and anxieties around her. She draws and paints as a means of emotional expression and ventilation.
