Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0809166631, Paperback)

Sure to pull readers in from the very first page, this book introduces Whitney Bickham as she's trying to handle--all at once--her beloved grandmother's death, the family move from Michigan to Chicago, and a brand new school. Whitney's solution? She'll run away. Before she does, she opens the Emerald Bible for the first time since her grandmother died, hoping to recapture some of the wisdom Nana always found there for her. With the turn of a page, Whitney is thrust into the real-life adventure of Jonah, who's trying to run away from his duties as a preacher. Whitney and her dog Bailey accompany Jonah on his journey--from the storm-tossed ship, to the belly of the whale, to the sinful city of Nineveh. She learns it's impossible to run away but that God will always be with her, even during the most frightening hours.

Illustrated throughout with lively black-and-white drawings, these two exciting, fun-filled books and the Emerald Collection titles to follow-- --present the best-loved Bible stories with immediacy and impact --show the relevancy of Biblical lessons to today's situations --encourage family values, tradition, and intergenerational dialogue --tap the large and profitable middle-grade market --can be enjoyed by kids 8 to 12 of all Christian denominations --will have snowballing sales as later readers eagerly seek out the earlier Whitney adventures, as well as clamor for what happens next Recommend this series to-- o parents and grandparents o parochial school teachers o home schools o CCD teachers o directors of religious ed o parishes o gift buyers o girls aged 8 to 12
