Ruby ShinesBright is a very special little girl. She lives in a place called Flooperville and has a red stone on her tummy which shines bright when she is happy and well.

She is very excited because tomorrow is going to be a special day for her, it's her fifth birthday.

Her granny Ruth has made her a beautiful cake and it'™s sitting in the kitchen ready, however, Ruby can'™t wait until her party, and so naughtily she sneaks down in the night and accompanied by her little black kitten Dotty, she eats it all!

The next morning her granny is very unhappy with her, and poor little Ruby's stone on her tummy is very dull. She feels very unwell and deeply regrets eating all that cake. What'™s more, her granny wants to know what they are going to give her friends to eat when they arrive for her party later.

Then, Ruby has a great idea, and with help from her granny she makes a delicious cake of fruits which all her family and friends love.

And when the time comes for her to blow out her candles, can you guess what she wishes for?

To find out, you have to read the book!

This is a wonderful story for children and is beautifully illustrated by the talented artist Jackie Atkin.
