Besides having big pictures on every page and only a few lines of text in English it also had the story in (pointed) Hebrew. Hence the book is good for studying/practicing Hebrew as well. But be aware that this is not original Talmudic text (from Tractate Shabbos 119, but a modern paraphrase by R. Keren.

The story is simple: a gentile is told by a stargazer that all his money will end up in Yossef’s hands. So he sells everything buys a huge diamond, puts it in his hat that is blown into the river, where a fish gulps it. The fishermen catch the fish; sell it to Yossef right before Shabbat, because they know that Yossef loves Shabbat so much he would buy an extra fish even if it is almost late. The lesson from the last page: “If someone lends to Shabbos, Shabbos will pay him back.”
